Todd Youth (Warzone, Agnostic Front, Danzig) dies

Todd Youth Punk and hardcore musician Todd Youth (née Schofield) has reportedly passed away at the age of 47. Growing up in New York City, Youth went on to play in a handful of notable bands, including Warzone, Murphy's Law, Agnostic Front, Danzig, Samhain, and Fireburn. News of Youth's passing comes via his Fireburn bandmate, Joseph I, who had the following to say:
"On the passing of my friend, and my Brother Todd Youth: There are no words to express how sad I am at the passing of my brother Todd Youth. The music he made will forever be remembered, and I'm so thankful that I was able to work with him and that we created Fireburn together. Todd and I were living separate lives doing hardcore and reggae music. We met each other in 1992 and then never spoke again until 2017. We created Fireburn within two weeks of knowing each other and finished writing two of my favorite hardcore records that I ever worked on: 'Don't stop the youth', and 'Shine'. Closed Casket records signed the band and we were on our way. We had great shows and lots of people showed up to them. We toured with #GBH from England, hung out with the guys from #NegativeApproach, and got our blessings about our music and our records from the #BadBrains. I know that Todd is now resting in peace and I know that Krishna has taken his soul to a better place. He was a devout Hari Krishna and a devout human being. Todd wherever you are I hope that we will make music again one day. Life is a circle, and I know I'll meet you again in that circle brother. We will meet again. Rest In Peace, Rest In Power, rest my brother. I am saddened that we cannot make music again together in this world, but I am happy that you are finally going home to be with Krishna that Haile Selassie has finally giving you peace and comfort my brother. One day, I too will lay down and die. This body that I ware is temporary. I will probably be alone. They're probably be no one around me. However I know that I will join you and all of our other friends in that good place and we'll all see each other again. I'm sorry you died Todd. I'm sorry I can't see you again. I'm sorry I wasn't there to help you. You are my friend and my brother and I love you. Rest in peace my brother. May your visit to our Heavenly Home be full of peace, and comfort, and closeness to Krishna. Haribo. Haile Selassie I."

Poor Todd couldn't take it anymore knowing that the migrant caravan stalks forward slowly and steadily. Much like a zombie, eventually they will reach the mainland

This sucks, Todd was such a huge contributor to hardcore and his resume is absolutely unbelievable. Really want to know what happened, and why his life was cut so short. RIP.

^ He was out for a jog wearing an Adidas running suit. Some fans reached out to hug him from behind a bush, and Youth, 47, slipped off the trail, landing awkwardly with massive force on his fully erect c-ck. He shattered his c-ck.

The old farts in Kublai Khan are currently preparing the necessary paperwork to sue the estate of Todd Youth.

^ For what though? Joke falls flat. 3/10

"Lol so how is he a Krishna and a fckin Rastafarian at the same time?" Todd was a Krishna. Joseph is Rastafarian. Not hard to figure out.

"Todd was a Krishna. Joseph is Rastafarian. Not hard to figure out" Calm down, Tesla. Youre missing what I'm saying. My point was that this Israel Joseph guy comes out sounding like a moron because Selassie would've meant little to nothing to Todd Youth spiritually.

Why do you care?
