The Cramps drummer Nick Knox has died at the age of 60.

John D Morton confirmed the news on his official Twitter. Knox – born Nicholas Stephanoff – had played in the Electric Eels with Morton before becoming a member of the influential punk outfit.

“My friend Nick Knox shuffled off the mortal coil last night,” he said. Referring to the image in the post, Morton added: “I saw a self-portrait of the artist Tseng Kwong Chi in front of the Eiffel Tower except his figure had been cut out. It was explained to me as a custom of remembering the dead by removing them from photos.”

Former Cramps member Miriam Linna also posted a lengthy tribute for the drummer. “I’m writing this now before I have time to think logically,” the post begins. “I feel so regally let down by time and fate, that it’s difficult to do much more than marvel at the preposterous puppetmasters that act on whims and fancy to mess with our visions of perfection.”

Kid Congo Powers, who was in The Cramps in the early ’80s, hailed Knox as the “coolest of the cool”.

“R.I.P. Glad to have played to your boss Beat. Meet you on the mystery plane. Nick said on his last email to me a few months ago ‘don’t take any wooden nickles or $20 bills with Reggie Jackson on ’em. Your friend and mine.’ Already missed.”
