OFF! Singer Keith Morris Recovering From Diabetic Coma

Keith Morris of OFF! is recovering from a diabetic coma he slipped into shortly after returning home from the Big Day Out Australian tour.



OFF! have had to cancel their current American tour and posted the follow message at their Facebook page. “Sadly, we have to cancel our west coast tour due to illness. Refunds are available at point of purchase. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to performing in these cities in the near future”.

He told Rolling Stone, “I’m a diabetic and I failed to eat lunch. Came back, hung out with my girlfriend, and the whole idea was that we were going to do what grown-ups do – go take a nap and go get something to eat. I should have eaten first. So we did what we did, and I passed out. As I passed out, I actually blacked out and went into a diabetic-induced coma. So I’m kind of like the T-shirt that’s been sitting in the dryer for three days.”

57-year old Morris, from Hermosa Beach, California, was with Black Flag and Circle Jerks prior to OFF!. He recently reformed Black Flag for dates later in 2013.

OFF! is his punk supergroup featuring Dimitri Coats (Burning Bridges), Steven Shane McDonald (Red Kross) and Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket From The Crypt). Morris formed the band in 2009.

OFF! have released two albums ‘First Four EPs’ (2010) and ‘Off!’ (2012).
