R.I.P. Daisy Berkowitz, Founding Member of Marilyn Manson, AC/DC Producer George Young

Scott Putesky, better known as Daisy Berkowitz, has died, according to the San Antonio Current.

Putesky was best known for co-founding and playing guitar in Marilyn Manson up until halfway through the recording of 1996’s Antichrist Superstar when he left over creative differences with vocalist Marilyn Manson.

After leaving Marilyn Manson, Putesky played in a number of other bands including Jack Off Jill, Godhead and his own project Three Ton Gate.

In 2013 the guitarist revealed he was battling stage four colon cancer, but according to a post on Jack of Jill’s Facebook page, Putesky passed away on Sunday, October 22.


CoS also reports, via the band’s Facebook page that George Young, an Australian musician and record producer who guided his younger brothers Malcolm and Angus in the early years of their band AC/DC, has died at the age of 70.

In the early 1960s, Young played rhythm co-guitar in the Australian rock band The Easybeats and also co-wrote nearly all of the band’s songs, including international hit “Friday on My Mind”. He also penned John Paul Young’s chart-topping song, “Love Is in the Air”, adds the site.

Following the dissolution of The Easybeats in 1970, George started his own production company and worked closely with his younger brothers, Malcolm and Angus, as they launched their own band in AC/DC. George co-produced and played bass guitar on several of the band’s earliest and most successful albums, including High VoltageT.N.T.Dirty Deeds Done Dirt CheapLet There Be Rock, and Powerage.

    I’m a fan of both these bands and R.I.P. to both! In my honest opinion ‘Manson’ was at his best when ‘Daisy’ was in the band.
