King Coffey (b. Jeffrey Coffey) is an American drummer, known for being the drummer of the psychedelic/noise rock band Butthole Surfers and band leader of Drain.[1] He began drumming in a Fort Worth hardcore punk band called The Hugh Beaumont Experience. Around that same time he published a fanzine called Throbbing Cattle. He saw Butthole Surfers for the first time in 1982 at a time when Scott Matthews was their drummer. Coffey replaced him in 1983[2] 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.[3] He is married to record label executive Craig Stewart.[4]
