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.
Charlie “Chalo” Quintana has passed away. One of the greatest drummers of all time. A true test of a drummers ability is a slow song. No one could ever match him on this. It was an honor to have recorded this and so many other songs with him. — TheBandCracker (@TheBandCracker)

Cracker guitarist Johnny Hickman had
a fond memory of Quintana's time with the band as well.
Quintana got his start in the 1970s playing in a series of punk bands including The Plugz (performing on the track "Hombre Secreto (Secret Agent Man) from the legendary
Repo Man soundtrack), Cruzados and The Havalinas. His bandmate in the latter band, Tim Scott "Ledfoot" McConnell wrote of Quintana, "there is such a thing as magic... Charlie was that... his playing would bring you to thankful tears."
Guitarist Chris Lawrence, who toured with Quintana in 1998 on Social Distortion singer Mike Ness' first solo outing, called the drummer a "fuel injected turbocharged powerhouse with the timing of a nuclear clock."
In addition to Social Distortion -- which he joined from 2000-2009 -- and Cracker, Quintana toured with and recorded sessions with everyone from Bob Dylan to X's John Doe (1995's
Kissingsohard), Mecca Normal (1997's Who Shot Elvis?) Agent Orange, Joan Osborne and Izzy Stradlin & the Ju Ju Hounds, performing on that band's self-titled 1992 debut. Related
