Watch the drummer in action

Renowned drummer Jerry Fuchs has died, and ClashMusic has found a small tribute to the musician.

New York may be the city that never sleeps, but Jerry Fuchs was the drummer who never rested. As a member of !!! the drummer was responsible for supplying Motorik grooves for the band's demented tribal offerings.

Arguably the lynchpin of the entire group, !!! released only one album together - the stunning lost classic 'Myth Takes'.

Since !!! split Jerry Fuchs became involved with LCD Soundystem, as well as touring with fellow DFA dance punks The Juan MacLean. At a time when producers were digging out their old drum machines it was a surprise to find a drummer who could cope with competition from technology.

Jerry Fuchs tragically died earlier this week, and tributes are flooding in for this much loved musician. Watch a tribute to his skills here...
