Writer, musician, and director J.R. Getches died on April 11th, 2022 in Houston, TX at the age of 64 from a rare form of cancer called Angiosarcoma, a disease that develops in the inner lining of blood vessels and lymph vessels. Getches was slated to direct a Bon Scott biopic entitled, Bon Scott – The Legend of AC/DC. He was a longtime Charleston resident who recently moved to Colorado.

During his career, Getches composed music for the Princeton Ballet and the Annabelle Gonzalez Dance theater and co-created “Celebrity Wake-up Call” with Pamela Anderson. His musical resume included stints as a guitarist with Native Tongue, The Poppies, Christine Lavine, and The Bette Williams Band.
