This is a shock-Chuck Biscuits was a great drummer. we last saw him playing for Social Distortion at Londons Garage.

Prolific punk drummer Chuck Biscuits died Saturday after a lengthy struggle with throat cancer. He was 44.

Chuck was born Charles Montgomery in British Columbia, Canada, performing with hardcore pioneers D.O.A. before relocating to California in 1982 and joining Black Flag. Those early days in California saw him perform with a number of legendary bands, including the Circle Jerks, Fear, and the The Weirdos.

Biscuits later made his name playing for Danzig. From 1988 he performed as part of that band for their first four albums. He later appeared on their 1993 Thrall: Demonsweatlive EP which yielded the hit "Mother." The drummer performed with a number of acts from punk to hip hop, logging time with everyone from Samhain and Social Distortion to Run D.M.C.

Our deepest condolences go out to Chuck's family and friends.
