Punk rock veteran Todd Youth, born 05/15/1971, played in several New York City hardcore and punk bands before joining Danzig. After playing briefly for Agnostic Front in 1984, Todd played guitar for Warzone until around 1986 when he joined Murphy's Law. In 1995, he left Murphy's Law, and recorded one 7" single with The Home Wreckers in 1996. From 1996 to 1998, he played guitar for D-Generation (whose bassist was future Danzig member Howie Pyro) and recorded two albums. From 1998 until 1999 he was the guitarist for Chrome Locust, and is featured on one of their albums. During the summer of 1999, he successfully auditioned for Danzig. When original Samhain guitarist Damien decided not to join the band for their reunion tour, Todd was asked to replace him. He only had 3 months to practice and learn the Samhain and Danzig sets. Although not an "original" member of Samhain, fans welcomed him to the lineup, some even mistaking him for Damien. Todd was also the mastermind behind the Son Of Sam album with London May and Steve Zing.
