Former Danzig Guitarist Passes Away

Todd Youth (born Todd Schofield,) known for his time playing with hardcore bands such as Warzone and Murphy's Law, as well as Danzig, has passed away at the age of 47. The guitarist also spent time with such bands as Agnostic Front, D-Generation and even filled in for Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell for a short period, before forming a new band named Fireburn with former Bad Brains vocalist Ras Israel Joseph I, who posted the following message on his Facebook account:

"There are no words to express how sad I am at the passing of my brother Todd Youth. The music he made will forever be remembered, and I'm so thankful that I was able to work with him and that we created Fireburn together. Todd and I were living separate lives doing hardcore and reggae music. We met each other in 1992 and then never spoke again until 2017. We created Fireburn within two weeks of knowing each other and finished writing two of my favorite hardcore records that I ever worked on: "Don't stop the youth", and "Shine". Closed casket records signed the band and we were on our way.

"We had great shows and lots of people showed up to them. We toured with GBH from England, hung out with the guys from Negative Approach, and got our blessings about our music and our records from the Bad Brains. I know that Todd is now resting in peace and I know that Krishna has taken his soul to a better place. He was a devout Hari Krishna and a devout human being.

"Todd wherever you are I hope that we will make music again one day. Life is a circle, and I know I'll meet you again in that circle brother. We will meet again. Rest In Peace, Rest In Power, rest my brother. I am saddened that we cannot make music again together in this world, but I am happy that you are finally going home to be with Krishna that Haile Selassie has finally giving you peace and comfort my brother.

"One day, I too will lay down and die. This body that I wear is temporary. I will probably be alone. There'll probably be no one around me. However I know that I will join you and all of our other friends in that good place, and we'll all see each other again. I'm sorry you died Todd. I'm sorry I can't see you again. I'm sorry I wasn't there to help you. You are my friend and my brother and I love you. Rest in peace my brother. May your visit to our Heavenly Home be full of peace, and comfort, and closeness to Krishna. Haribo. Haile Selassie I. FIREBURN." More...
