Gerard Smith [Of TV On The Radio] Loses His Fight With Lung Cancer

This makes me so sad. Gerard was the coolest, most humble, talented, sweet, and just all around good dude. I'm sick right now. I thought he was doing better, that he was beating this thing. Life is so fragile, man, fuck. Huge shout to his brothers/band members, his family, his friends and fans all over the world.

The guys had this to say on their website:

We are very sad to announce the death of our beloved friend and bandmate, Gerard Smith, following a courageous fight against lung cancer. Gerard passed away the morning of April 20th, 2011. We will miss him terribly.

April 20 St. Andrew Halls, Detroit MI
April 22 Metro, Chicago IL
April 23 First Ave, Minneapolis MN
April 24 First Ave, Minneapolis MN

There will be more information as it becomes available.
