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 punk 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.
