He saw Butthole Surfers for the first time in 1982 at a time when Scott Matthews was their drummer. Coffey replaced him in 1983 and is still the band's official drummer. Coffey founded the independent record label Trance Syndicate. In September 2014, Coffey won "Yard Of The Month" in his local neighborhood. He is married to record label executive Craig Stewart.
