DS News: Dead Kennedys drummer D.H. Peligro passes away

Devastating news coming from the Dead Kennedys camp today, as the iconic California punk band has announced the passing of drummer D.H. Peligro. According to a statement released on their Facebook page, Peligro passed away in his Los Angeles home on October 28th after he sustained a head injury in an accidental fall.

Peligro, otherwise known as Darren Henley, had been a member of the Dead Kennedys since 1981, and played on three studio albums: Plastic Surgery Disasters, Frankenchrist, and Bedtime for Democracy. He also had a brief stint in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and co-wrote a few tracks that appear on their highly-influential 1989 album Mother’s Milk. The legendary drummer was 63 years young at the time of his passing.

Dying Scene’s condolences go out to the Dead Kennedys and D.H. Peligro’s family. We encourage you to blast some DKs in his honor.
