Music career

Druff, who was born in New Haven, Connecticut, formed the St. Louis rock band Shagnaps in 1991. The band had much success on the local St. Louis scene.[citation needed] The band featured guitarist/singer Dan Druff, bassist/singer Otis London and drummer Tony Mack. The Shagnaps broke up in 1995 and played reunion shows in 1996 and 1998.

Dan had a brief stint with the Chrysalis/EMI punk band Butt Trumpet in 1995. He abruptly quit the band onstage at a New York City concert. Dan appears in Butt Trumpet's video "I'm Ugly and I Don't Know Why."

Dan Druff started working with QOTSA on their 2000 "Rated R" album. In early 2005, Queens bassist Nick Oliveri left due to personal differences with Queen's frontman Josh Homme, and was replaced with Druff, who performed with the band through their "Lullabies to Paralyze" ("Europa") Promo Tour. Dan appears in QOTSA "Little Sister" and "Long Slow Goodbye" videos.
