Death of Daisy Berkowitz
Marilyn Manson’s co-founder and ex-guitarist Scott Putesky, better known as Daisy Berkowitz, passed away this weekend. He was 49 years old.
According to San Antonio Current, the musician died after a long struggle with intestinal cancer, diagnosed in 2013.
Putesky helped bring Marilyn Manson's early records to life, including Portrait of An American Family and Smells Like Children, being responsible for some of the most iconic guitar work from the band in songs like "Sweet Dreams," "Lunchbox," and "Cake and "Sodomy."
After departing Marilyn Manson in 1996 due to creative differences in the writing of Antichrist Superstar, Putesky went on to join Jack Off Jill, Godhead, and his own band Three Ton Gate. Jack Off Jill posted to Facebook, writing "Saying good bye to Scoot, friend, band mate, artist, hero… RIP Scott — 'always touched by your presence dear.'"
Later, Marilyn Manson posted on his Instagram a joint photo with Putesky, writing the following:
"Scott Putesky and I made great music together. We had our differences over the years, but I will always remember the good times more. Everyone should listen to “Man That You Fear” in his honor. That was our favorite."
