Gerard Smith (1977-2011)

I remember about a month ago seeing reports that TV On The Radio's Gerard Smith had been struggling with lung cancer, but I didn't expect to see news of his passing this morning.

A note from the rest of the band and a list of canceled show dates is on their official site, along with notice that "There will be more information as it becomes available."

This is very sad news. Multiple spins of Return to Cookie Mountain and Young Liars shall commence.

I found this very good and rticle via Guardian.Co.UK. Seemed like a fitting eulogy.



R.I.P.

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
