Misfits drummer Joey Image has sadly passed away at the age of 63.

Joey Image (born Joey Poole) was an American punk rock drummer. He joined the Misfits in November 1978. He was the drummer for both the “Horror Business” and “Night of the Living Dead” sessions of 1979

Joey revealed he had liver cancer in 2016 and had been battling it since, seeking treatment at the University of Miami. He noted on a GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money for his treatments that he was a candidate for a liver transplant.

Joey performed on the classic Misfits EP Horror Business, the Beware EP, and the “Night of the Living Dead” single during his time with the band between 1978 and 1980. He briefly rejoined the band for a performance in 2000.
