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.

Speaking as a musician, I think there IS such a thing as bad music. Musicians should strive to push the envelope, not by being controversial, but by mastering the art of weaving melodies and harmonies together with the result of moving people.
