Died On This Date (January 12, 2010) Brian “Damage” Keats / Drummer For The Misfits

Posted by themusicsover on January 12, 2010

Brian Damage (Born Brian Keats)
February 11, 1963 – January 12, 2010

Brian Damage was a rock drummer who once played with Glenn Danzig in his band, the Misfits.  Prior to that, Damage played with Genocide and Verbal Abuse.  He joined the Misfits in 1983, but his first show ended up being the band’s farewell concert. And Damage didn’t even complete that show,  as reports indicate, he was so drunk that the other band members physically removed him from the stage mid-show and continued on with another drummer.  Following his brief tenure with the Misfits, Damage landed several studio and live gigs with many other artists.  That list includes Raging Slab, Princess Pang, Sylvain Sylvain, Low Pop Suicide, Susannah Hoffs, Billy Idol, and the Fuzztones.  Brian Damage died of cancer on January 12, 2010.  He was 46 years old.
