Day-glo hair, tattoos, piercings, potty mouth, bizarre skin tone, fluorescent lipstick, and a hostile skating style were the trademarks of the remarkable Ann “Banana Nose” Calvello aka Queen of the Derby, who died Tuesday of liver cancer at Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame, California. She was 76, and had skated into seven decades. As a member of the San Francisco Bay Bombers, she relished playing the villain, the skater whom competitors’ fans loved to hate. “She was creative, way ahead of her time,” said fellow skater and roller derby referee. “People would say to her, ‘You’re the Dennis Rodman of your era.’ ‘No, no, no,’ she’d say, ‘they’re the Ann Calvello of their era.’ She’s the one who created all this stuff.” In 2001, the documentary Demon of the Derby told her story. Watch the trailer here – it’s quite fabulous.
