Veteran punk drummer Charlie Quintana has died at age 56, according to social media tributes from a number of bands the journeyman musician performed with over his three-decade-plus career. One of the group's paying homage to the El Paso, Texas-born drummer was Cracker, who tipped their hat to Quintana's prodigious, unique skills behind the kit.
"One of the greatest drummers of all time," they wrote. "A true test of a drummers ability is a slow song. No one could ever match him on this." At press time Billboard had reached out to confirm the details of Quintana's death.
