Scott Putesky of Marilyn Manson

Scott Putesky, better known as Daisy Berkowitz, co-founded and played guitar in Marilyn Manson up until halfway through the recording of 1996’s Antichrist Superstar when he left over creative differences with vocalist frontman Marilyn Manson. After leaving the band, 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: "Saying goodbye to Scott, friend, bandmate, artist, hero.. RIP Scott - ‘always touched by your presence dear.'" Marilyn Manson (who will perform in San Antonio next year), released a statement on his Instagram: "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."
