TV on the Radio bassist dies.

R.I.P Gerard Smith

Only 36 years old and playing with one of the most innovative and exciting bands on the planet.  Having just released their fifth album – ‘Nine types of light’ and about to embark on a tour of the summer festivals, it is a tragic and untimely death.    Discovered while busking on the streets of NYC, he joined the band and became an integral part to their multi-layered, intricate, yet fluid sound.  A story of triumph in the face of adversity has ended on a sudden and sour note.
