Pinch has announced that he is to move on after 20 years drumming for the Damned.  Let’s be honest he’s been the man behind getting the band to where they are now no doubt about that and he feels after playing MSG recently the Palladium show is to be his last as he steps aside.  No doubt this will fuel the rumours as to who his replacement will be

Pinch made this 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 bandmates past and present as well as everyone in the Damned organization and wish them all the best for the future. Up the Punks. Pinch”
