Punk rock drummer Chuck Biscuits dead at 44

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.
