Snakefinger a/k/a Philip Charles Lithman is best known for his guitar work with The Residents, though he had many solo records (some written/produced with The Residents, but most were not), and was a founding member of one of the more known British Blues/Pub Rock bands Chilly Willy And The Red Hot Peppers. He also played violin. Snakefinger is one of the handful of musicians known to have died on stage -- he had a heart attack in Austria on the same day the single for "There's No Justice In Life" was released.
