BRIAN 'DAMAGE' KEATS

Recommended Posts

Dead at 46 - Jan. 14, 2010

According to author and veteran punk drummer Joel Gausten (PIGFACE, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN, THE UNDEAD), Brian "Damage" Keats, who drummed in the final incarnation of the Glenn Danzig-fronted MISFITS (circa 1983), died on January 12 following a battle with liver cancer. He was 46 years old.

 

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Damage played for the puk bands GENOCIDE and VERBAL ABUSE before Glenn Danzig invited him to join the MISFITS. He began rehearsing with the band in October 1983, just a few weeks before the band's Halloween show in Detroit. His first and only performance turned out to be the band's farewell show.

 

After the MISFITS, Brian remained in New York City and went on to play drums for HELLBENT, THE KRETINS, THE HELLHOUNDS, THE SKULLS, ANGELS IN VAIN, PRINCESS PANG, RAGING SLAB, and THE DIAMONDBACKS. He later moved to Los Angeles, and played and/or recorded with WINK, PRESSUREHED, BARON JIVE, SYLVAIN SYLVAIN, THE LIGHT BACHWOOD MOVEMENT, LINK PROTRUDI AND THE JAYMEN, PAUL INMAN, MARIOUX, LOW POP SUICIDE, 3 DAY WHEELY, BORTEK, SUSANNA HOFFS, DOPPLER, THE FUZZTONES and TRAMDRIVER.

 

He is survived by his wife and one child.
