Absolutely Tragic News: TV on the Radio Bassist Gerard Smith Dies


TV on the Radio announced bassist Gerard Smith, who had recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, died yesterday, April, 20, at age 36. He was diagnosed shortly after ‘Nine Types of Light’ was finished, the group has canceled their upcoming shows in order to mourn the death of their close friend.

I was just not expecting to see this headline at all, ever. I was convinced he’d win the battle and be fine. It is so sad to see a member of one of my favorite groups die at 36. He will be missed.
