Well, it appears the rumors of Chuck Biscuits’ demise have been greatly exaggerated.
The legendary Danzig drummer, who has also worked with Black Flag, Samhain, and ended his punk career in 1999 with Social Distortion, was reported to have passed away earlier today (Oct. 29) from throat cancer at the age of 44, with media giants like NPR, Entertainment Weekly and NME picking up the story up.
Turns out, however, that Biscuits’ death might not actually be true. The website that first reported the story, JG2 Land, is now claiming to have received an e-mail stating that Mr. Biscuits is alive and well. What’s more, other reports claim that while Biscuits does have cancer, the man who basically dropped out of the music scene is still fighting strong. As well, Entertainment Weekly took down its original posting.
While no official word has come down either way, it’s seeming more and more likely that Biscuits will be able to enjoy reading his own obituary.
We’ll keep you updated as per usual.
