Dr. Chud w/ Misfits in Japan Dr.Chud. That name alone strikes fear and disgust to those unlucky enough to know it. Who is he? Where did he come from? Well I am going to try and piece together his checkerd and quite bloody past. Most of you have heard of the abominable Doctor due to the 6 years he spent with the legendary punk rock group known as The MISFITS, but there is far more to this story than that. On April 4th, 1964 this world was unfortunate enough to witness the birth of Chud, named after the movie that would be made some 20 years later with the acronym Canniblistic Humanoid Underground Drummer!.

He started his professional musical career as the lead skin beater for DAN KIDNEY and the PULSATIONS. For 8 years he terrozied audiences with the Pulsations until the band broke away and Chud latched onto SARDONICA featuring the legendary Sal Bee and Fish. The band was sort of a warm up of things to come. Playing hard hitting horror rock fit Chud well and when the call came from Jerry Only of The Misfits for Chud to join up, he answered back with a affirimative "yes".

It took time for The Misfits to actually be The Misfits so during a drawn out and complicated battle between the bands original singer Glenn Danzig and Jerry as to who really owns the band's name, Chud started a side-project known as "SACRED TRASH ". Chud wrote, played guitar and even sang on the bands debut and only release known simply as "Sacred Trash". The band would not last long sadly enough as Jerry had gained The Misfits name and things began to move in a horrificly fast gear.

1996 saw a nation-wide "ressurection tour" and almost immediatly following that tour Dr. Chud, Jerry Only, Doyle & Michale were in the studio recording the bands first record in roughly 20 years for Geffen Records. The record was to be called "American Psycho" and featured quite a few songs penned by Dr. Chud. 2 years, numerous tours, (with acts like Megadeth, Marilyn Manson & Anthrax to name a few), singles, and a live record totaly overseen by Chud passed. Then the group hit the studio again this time for RoadRunner Records, and the album was "Famous Monsters". About the same time Chud and fellow Misfit Jerry Only recorded "1969" with JOEY RAMONE for a Iggy Pop tribute record "They Will Fall", the track was later used on the late Joey Ramone's solo record entitled "Don't Worry About Me".

After 6 years with the group, 2 studio records, 1 live recording, appearnces in such hit films as "Animal Room", "Bruiser", "Campfire Stories" and "Big Money Hustlas", and even time spent as a WCW wrestler, Dr. Chud walked away to form a new group. (After there depature however the Misfits released "Cuts From The Crypt" on RoadRunner Records, a collection rareities and unreleased tracks. CHUD's newest band would be known as "GRAVES" and it was off the ground almost 1 year later to the date that Chud left The Misfits (10/25/00). Within 1 years time the group arranged 2 nation-wide tours. Immediatly following the 1st tour known as "Web Of Dharma (Stand 1)" the band hit the studio to record a CD of the same name. Chud produced and distributed the record through his own "GDU Records" named after the fan club (GraveDiggersUnion) of the band, the second leg of the "Dharma" tour took place in 2002 and the band disbanded shortly after causing mass panic and chaos as to what the Doc would be doing next.
It's 2003 and his antidote for punk rock terror known as "DRCHUDS_X-WARD" explodes across the U.S. and Canada! IT'S ALIVE ! IT"S ALIVE !!........
