The death of Chuck Biscuits, the drummer who played with bands including Black Flag, Danzig and Social Distortion is being called into question.
As earlier reported the drummer had been widely reported to have died of throat cancer, but the original source for the news is now stating that he is now in fact alive.
The Canadian drummer, real name Charles Montgomery, has become reclusive over recent years and James Greene Jnr – the blogger who originally reported his death – had been emailing who he thought were the drummer and his wife for over five months.
Now after the news of his death has gone worldwide, Greene has said on his blog – JGTwo.wordpress.com, that his sources are now fake and part of an elaborate hoax.
An official announcement to confirm or deny Montgomery‘s death has yet to materialise.
