Punk rock drummer D.H. Peligro, a cornerstone of the band the Dead Kennedys, has died. He was 63.

Peligro, whose given name was Darren Henley, died Friday in his Los Angeles home, the band announced in an Instagram post.

“Police on the scene stated that he died from trauma to the head caused by an accidental fall,” according to the post, which said funeral arrangements would be announced “in the coming days.”

“We ask that you respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your thoughts and words of comfort,” the post read.

It’s unclear exactly what killed Peligro, according to TMZ, which reported the drummer was found dead in the bathroom of his San Fernando Valley home and had hit his head — but that it’s unclear if the injury was fatal.
