Legendary Danzig/Social Distortion Drummer Chuck Biscuits Loses Battle With Throat Cancer

Posted Oct. 29, 2009, 1:49 a.m. in Obituaries by Kevin Fitzpatrick

James Greene Jr., a freelance music writer from New York has reported that drummer Chuck Biscuits has died, losing his battle with cancer on October 24th, 2009 . Greene recieved an e-mail from an anonymous family member this morning stating “In response to the inquires, thank you for all the support, Chuck did not survive his battle with throat cancer. He passed surrounded by his family on 10/24/09.”

Chuck was probably best known for his work on the first four Danzig albums as well as his work with Social Distortion in the late 90's and a brief stints with Black Flag and the Circle Jerks. On a personal note, growing up in Vancouver, Chuck (born Charles) and his brother Ken "Dimwit" Montgomery were legends on the local scene, Dimwit having been drummer for local punk godfathers D.O.A. and later The Four Horsemen before he unfortunately died of an overdose in 1994. Chuck retired from music a few years ago but many of us not-so-secretly ever-so-selfishly were hoping for a return to the kit. Our deepest condolences go out to the Montgomery family. You can hear Chuck's last known recorded work on Social Distortion's 1998 release "Live at the Roxy".
