Biography
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.
