UPDATE 3: Chuck Biscuits is alive!

UPDATE (good news): Chuck's death may be a hoax!

UPDATE 2: Chuck Biscuits is not an easy man to get a hold of these days, but someone is now claiming that Otis Link did in fact do that.

Danzig

Legendary hard rock drummer Chuck Biscuits, whose lengthy résumé included stints in such flagship underground acts as Black Flag and Social Distortion, died Saturday after a prolonged battle with throat cancer. He was 44.

Chuck Biscuits"In response to the inquires, thank you for all the support," an anonymous family member wrote in an e-mail sent this morning. "Chuck did not survive his battle with throat cancer. He passed surrounded by his family on 10/24/09."

Chuck Biscuits was probably best known to the general populous for his work with Danzig. Beginning in 1988, Chuck played on that group's first four albums, which are often hailed as Danzig's best (thanks in no small part to Chuck's powerful drumming style). The percussionist also appeared on 1993's Thrall: Demonsweatlive EP; that release yielded an unexpected chart-burning hit for Danzig in "Mother," a song the band originally included on their self-titled debut. [JG2 Land]

Chuck Biscuits, known not only for his drumming, but for being the member of Danzig without black hair! Chuck also played with the Circle Jerks, D.O.A., Fear, and even drummed on a RUN DMC album. He died way too young. R.I.P. DIDN'T DIE

Such an amazing drummer and so much so that Danzig the band ought to have been named Biscuits.

That's pretty sad. Great drummer and heard he was a great, solid dude.

RIP

"north side kings still undefeated"

True, but how many albums has that band sold? 100.

Danzig - Millions.

Glenn clearly won that bout.

Hahaha. NSK... funny joke.
Danzig is a LEGEND. Danzig I & II are among the greatest hard rock albums ever conceived. Plus the Misfits, Samhain and more. Let's hope that Glenn returns to his TRUE ROCK roots soon and records one more great album before HE leaves this Earth.

Notwithstanding, this is about CHUCK, an undeniable part of Danzig's sound. GREAT DRUMMER. Great personality! R.I.P.

This hasn't yet been properly confirmed, it's only from one source and that source hasn't been identified. I'd hang on for more information, personally...

The photo he previously links to, which purports to be a picture of Chuck, doesn't really look like him to me???

Since it is almost certain that Chuck and Glenn are reading this, how about a return to real ROCK Danzig band? Someday, Chuck and Glenn WILL be dead, just like Joey and Johnny and Dee Dee...

Glenn, your fans await your "comeback" album, the biggest, best, REAL rock & roll record ever made!!!

THIS IS A RUMOR, folks!! I just got it confirmed from John Christ himself! Chuck Biscuits is STILL ALIVE!!

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2009 7:28 PM

Danzig might have a huge ego but seriously, North Side Kings? Who cares about tough guy wigger rock? That scene is the epitome of "gay."

Biscuits, however, is/was one of the best punk drummers ever. He's the Keith Moon of hardcore - his drumming on the '82 Black Flag demos, the DOA "hardcore 81" album, and everything else was truly incredible. RIP!?!

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2009 9:36 PM

this is driving me crazy. For every "he's alive" I read, I get in touch with someone else who tells me they think he's dead...

As soon as I get 100% confirmation one way or the other (hopefully alive!), I will do a new post. In the meantime, this post has been updated for hours with the note that it may be a hoax.

That's a real drag.

Danzig 1-4 are all classics. I even like Blackacidevil. Glenn is an underrated rock legend.

If I am not mistaken he also played for the BIG BOYS as well. I will have to go through my LP's to be for sure. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
Whatever the case he will shurely be missed.
