Tony Muth 2014:



*Update News

Tony Muth is doing fine and has gained weight. Muth said he does not want to be contacted by anyone from his past. His fear is if he’s in contact with friends from the past he might slip so, he’s asking to be left alone.  He’s moved on with drug-free friends.

Drummer Tony Muth was born Anthony Muth in the bay area.  Muth is from the band (The Departed)  The California native is making a career change from drummer to acting and print  modeling.  Muth has been a drummer for 23 years for a punk- rock band.  He has played all over the bay area with The Departed and was a contract drummer with the band (Fang) Muth is sweet,  honest, and shy.

Muth loves all aspects of acting and once he finishes rehab he has plans to start acting classes and look forward to signing with a talent agency.   Anthony Muth stands 6′ 2″ with hazel eyes.

At the moment Muth is struggling with insecurity, alcohol,  drug use and depression.  The best part is that  Muth is aware of his problems and has seeked help.  He will be in rehab for 8 months.  When I interviewed Muth he said  ” I want the world to know me, all about me, this is why I am doing this interview, I am on the road to recovery and someday I will able to reach out and to help someone.” His favorite actor is Robert Redford.

Muth parents were teens when he was born and they are still together,  he also said in his interview with me ” I want everyone to pray for my recovery and please send me your comments with your love and support.” “I hate racism , I love the truth.”T

  1. hi de de! hope you are well. wondering if you’ve seen tony lately? miss him and hope he’s okay! i haven’t seen him in a couple years now and am worried.

  2. Hello. Tony is one of my closest friends and I was actually speaking with DeeDee a couple years ago as I moved to LA & Tony & for a bit. I was skateboarding through the downtown area of SF in mid August, 2015 & we ran into one another. He was in good spirits and still striving to pull out of the world he was struggling in. I love him like a brother & am grateful I was able to see him & spend time with him. I am happy to say, he is trying to move forward, has a place to live and does indeed have a couple of phones now. I will have to respect his wishes and not release contact information or where he is living yet am happy to say he is stable and for the most part safe. When I see him again, I will let him know he is loved by many and perhaps release contact information; if Tony wants it publicly known. He is one of the best people I know and I hope he stays in it. Most people I know from back in the day are dead. It was a gift to see Tony smile and catch up with him. It is great to read about all the love people have for him as he is a loving, caring, individual. I hope he reaches out to more people as it would help him a lot. Thank you DeeDee for your kind words when we spoke a couple years ago. Tony mentioned you when we were hanging out. cheers!! -tms (A)

    1. you are most welcome. As a Matter of fact I saw Tony about 2 Months ago on crutches. I took photos of him. I will post them if you would like to see them.. Hugs De De

      1. De De.

        Hello. I apologize I misspelled your name. My mobile went a little blinky & I didn’t finish my sentence in the beginning of my post either. I had moved to LA/SD with my wife & Tony & I lost touch around the time he went missing. Your initial article helped me a lot.

        I am very grateful to have finally seen him. I would love some pictures of him as I only have a few from 2006 -2008 or so. I got clear of the needle & have been good for years. I was very happy to see Tony moving in a more positive direction. If I can find them all, I will send you the pictures I have. I may have some Departed pictures too. Anyway, thank you for all your kindness and for supporting Tony. He said you are awesome. Talk to you later. Next time I am in SFC, maybe you, Tony & I could get some coffee. It would be nice to meet you in person. Cheers!! (A) -timothy stern

      2. Hi Timothy,
        I am so glad you are having a great time and I will for sure put up the photos of Tony I took of him 2 months ago. I would LOVE to have lunch or dinner when you are here in SF.. I will tell Tony you said Hello

      4. hello de de.

        big ups for the message. i saw buster by the rehearsal space we would hang in and play music on hyde street a couple years ago. he was a lot heavier due to a leg injury. fucking car rolled onto his leg in a tenderloin blowout. i am grateful he is on methadone even if it is a lot. better than junk. i have 5 days off maintenance junk and it is rough. finally did it all the way. it is a fucking marathon kicking maintenance. that said, tony has more heart than most. i want to pull him out of the section 8 hotels so he can be around healthy people. if he was open to it, my wife & i would move him to del mar for awhile. i love the sfc but i think he would be good spreading out a bit. thank you for the email. i haven’t my opened up my wordpress because i am not done editing… i will be in touch. i hope this finds you well. please give tony my number if you see him before i go up in september. 510-827-6252. if you are in los angeles and want to review some restaurants in echo & hoghland park, i have some owners that need press… thanks & cheers!!

  5. Hi De De,
    My name is Brandon and I’m Tony’s first cousin. I was wondering if you’ve seen or talked with Tony lately? I often think about Tony and wonder how’s he doing, if he’s alive, if I’d ever get a chance to see him again. I got extremely excited when I came across this site. I miss him and I love him and our family has always had a strong bond no matter how long it has been since we’ve seen each other. If possible, could you please email me in private and just update me on how’s he doing? Not sure if you’re still in touch. Thank you, Brandon

  12. hey dede,

    i’m glad i found this post. tony is a close friend of mine – we met 10 years ago and used to live together. i haven’t heard anything from him in about 7 months and am worried. i hope he followed through with rehab and that he knows his friends are thinking about him and wishing him well. if you ever see him or talk to him, please let him know we care.


    1. Hi Lizzy, The moment I see or see him again I will do an update, the last timw I saw him he was talking about killing himself. I took that of him, gave him a big hug and told him his life have a purpose, I talked him into getting a grant to start helping children learn how to play drums. I am so worried that something is wrong.

      Let’s Pray he’s in rehab
      De De Tillman

      1. oh no! i really hope he is in rehab or just taking some time to himself. i worry about him & miss him. thanks for your response, and please do let me know if you hear anything about him. i’m considering going down to visit another old friend of his, and will update you as well if i hear anything.

    1. Hi Tom, Tony’s family leaves in Stockton, It’s been a long time since we have seen him, he’s not doing well and he’s extremely depressed. If I see or hear from him I will for sure let you know and thanks;
