TV on the Radio Bassist Gerard Smith, Diagnosed with Lung CancerPosted: March 15, 2011
Despite the potentially amazing news of Sublime With Rome’s upcoming release, I come bearing bad news as well. The bassist of Brooklyn indie band TV on the Radio, Gerard Smith, was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after their upcoming release, Nine Types of Light, due out April 12th, was finished.
“Gerard is fortunate enough to have health insurance and is receiving excellent medical care,” the band wrote in an online statement. “Already we have seen dramatic results. Combine that with Gerard’s legendarily willful disposition and it might just be cancer that has the problem.” -Rolling Stone
Pray to God, Allah, Buddha, Charles Darwin, Tom Cruise, whoever it is you pray too, that Smith gets better.
