The Damned are to part ways with drummer Pinch (Andrew Pinching) after two decades.
The drummer made this statement regarding the decision: “After 20 years with The Damned it’s time for me to move on. Having just fulfilled a dream playing Madison Square Garden, the upcoming London Palladium show seems like an obvious stepping off point for me. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some heroes and play shows with legendary bands and amazing characters. I send my love to my band mates past and present as well as everyone in the Damned organization and wish them all the best for the future. Up the Punks. Pinch”
His last show was last night (October 27th) at the London Palladium.
