Chuck Biscuits not dead?

There's a hoax going around that Chuck Biscuits is dead- apparently he isn't. In the article notifying his death, it states that he died after a long battle with throat cancer at age 44.

He's been one of my favourite drummers,
Biscuits drummed for all of em- Black Flag, DOA, Fear, Run D.M.C, The Weirdos, Danzig, Circle Jerks, Social Distortion and a band i wish i could get demos of- The Nig Heist. He's featured on the 1982 Black Flag demos which contain a good portion of the My War songs.

DOA circa 1980
L-R Randy Rampage, Joey Shithead and Chuck Biscuits.

Black Flag circa 1982
L-R Chuck Dukowski, Henry Garfield, Greg Ginn, Chuck Biscuits & Dez Cadena

Circle Jerks circa 1983
