Former Danzig, Warzone and Murphy’s Law guitarist, Todd Youth Schofield has died at the aged of 47.

Youth’s death confirmed by his bandmate Israel Joseph. He has shared a statement on Facebook and said:

“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 NEGATIVE APPROACH, and got our blessings about our music and our records from the BAD BRAINS.

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 Hare 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.”

Cause of death were not revealed yet. Rest in peace Todd Youth Schofield.
