After drumming for The Damned for 20 years, Pinch is planning to exit the group. His last show with the group will be at London Palladium on October 27th. The new drummer has not been announced as of yet.
Pinch released a statement: "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"
