Gerard Smith, the renowned bassist for TV on the Radio, has died after a long struggle with lung cancer. The tragic news arrived via TVOTR’s 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.”

Smith, who joined TV on the Radio in 2005, left an indelible mark on the group’s catalog, including its latest, Nine Types of Light.

Rest in power, kid.
