Bassist for TV on the Radio has passed away.

TV On the Radio's Gerard Smith dies of lung cancer (hosted.ap.org)

One of those bands that has made it bigger than I ever thought they would (and I say that as a fan). And geez, 36 is awfully young to be taken down in any way, shape or form.

It sounds like he went quickly, too. Wasn't he only diagnosed about a month ago? RIP, Gerard.

A little more than a year after his death, BBC ran a special "Essential Mix" tribute to Frankie Knuckles. If you're interested in such things, I wrote a bit more (and linked the two hour show) over on The Facebook: https://www.facebook.
- CRZ, RIP Frankie Knuckles (2015)
