"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's statement reads. "Gerard passed away the morning of April 20th, 2011. We will miss him terribly."

Well, that's rotten news. How does that happen to a 36-year-old? How many cigarettes did he smoke? What an absolute waste.

I know zip about medicine, but he seemed young for lung cancer. It might be something similar to Andy Kaufman, who died at about the same age of lung cancer.
