TV on the Radio's Gerard Smith passes away
"We are very sad to announce the death of our beloved friend and bandmate, Gerard Smith, following a courageous fight against lung cancer," the band posted on their website. "Gerard passed away the morning of April 20th, 2011. We will miss him terribly."
TV on the Radio was slated to perform two sold-out shows at First Avenue this weekend, and those shows were canceled today, along with three other dates on their tour.
