Drummer Chuck Biscuits, who played with Black Flag and Danzig, has died of throat cancer at the age of 44.
Information is scarce, but an e-mail from a family member confirmed to a music blog that Biscuits succumbed to the disease on October 24th.
“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.”
Biscuits also worked with the Circle Jerks and Run DMC during his career, and is rumored to have been a consideration as a drummer for Nirvana before Dave Grohl was selected.
