Knox played on the first four albums by the punk rock legends.
The Cramps drummer Nick Knox has died aged 60.
Electric Eels member John D Morton confirmed the news on Twitter this morning (June 16). Knox – whose real name was Nicholas Stephanoff – had played in the Electric Eels before joining The Cramps.
Knox was the longest-serving drummer of The Cramps, playing with the band from 1977 – 1991. He contributed to their first four LPs, including the 1980 Alex Chilton-produced Songs The Lord Taught Us and 1986’s A Date With Elvis, which was the band’s most commercially successful release.
Former Cramps members Miriam Linna and Kid Congo Powers have paid tribute to Knox on social media.
