Former Marilyn Manson co-founder Scott Putesky, a.k.a. Daisy Berkowitz, dies after long battle with cancer

Sad news has reached us from the Jack Off Jill headquarters as the death of co-founder and original guitarist Scott Putesky has been announced.


Scott Putesky was better known under his stage name Daisy Berkowitz created by combining Daisy Duke from ‘Dukes of Hazzard’, with the serial killer David Berkowitz. 49-year old Putesky lost the 4-year long battle with colon cancer. A battle which started with chemotherapy in September 2013.

Just a few days ago Putesky posted an update on his Facebook for his fundraiser in order to keep paying his medical bills adding the very unpleasant message that “I am not doing well, I am running out of options and that means running out of time.”

Putesky played guitar on the albums “Portrait of An American Family” and “Smells Like Children” before leaving the group in 1996 over creative differences during the writing sessions for what became the “Antichrist Superstar” LP. Berkowitz went on to join Jack Of Jill, Godhead and also launched his very own band: Three Ton Gate.
