Anderson, Alejandro Escovedo and Jeff Olener formed The Nuns in the mid-‘70s. The band went on to become a mainstay in the S.F. punk scene, including opening for the Sex Pistols at Winterland in 1978.

In addition to performing in reunion shows with The Nuns, Anderson was also a model and screenwriter, and worked for a law firm until last fall, according to SF Weekly.
