† Dec. 01, 2002
Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Cause of Death
Eberbaugh was killed when a motorist driving the wrong way on Ga. 400 slammed into his vehicle. According to Fulton County police reports, Jennifer Dawn Swierzynski, 29, was traveling northbound in the southbound lanes when her Toyota Camry crashed head-on into Eberbaugh's Ford Explorer. Both drivers died on impact.
Black Lips (Guitar)
Ben was one of the earliest and most substantial guitar players and vocalists for the BLACK LIPS; he played a key role in getting the ball rolling for the group. His death came as a shock to everyone.
The BLACK LIPS, who have developed a reputation as Atlanta's rowdiest rock act, were to have kicked off a tour of the Midwest and East Coast with fellow Atlanta band, the CARBONAS. The tour was to promote the release of the Black Lips' full-length debut on famed punk label Bomp Records, and was set to kick off Monday, Dec. 2, with a show at MJQ Concourse. But on Monday night the club's doors remained closed to the public to give Eberbaugh's friends a place to gather and reminisce about his life.
