So unbelievably sad.

Iggy Pop's former drummer, Alex Kirst, has passed away, due to complications from injuries he received when he was the victim of a hit-and-run in Cathedral City, CA.

The 47-year-old was reportedly out for a walk last week when he was hit by an SUV and left for dead, only to be spotted by the side of the road by a pedestrian two hours later.

Horrible! That literally leaves a knot in the bottom of our stomach.

Our thoughts are with Kirst's family and loved ones during this extremely difficult time, and we sincerely hope that whomever is responsible for this unnecessary loss is found, and brought to justice.

R.I.P.

    That's horrible!! My condolences to those who loved him! What an inhumane way to treat another. I hope the authorities catch whoever did this and punish this coward to the fullest extent of the law.

    He laid there in a crashed car for TWO HOURS before someone came to help? I've been to Cathedral City, it's a small town with plenty of police around…WHERE WERE THEY???

    And somewhere police were saying, "Okay so where exactly were you, Mr. Sheen?"

    Too soon?

    I hope it wasn't murder…I heard a rumour before I read this that he was murdered because he owed money or some crap. I hope that's not true!

    NOT one of your best moments, Perez. Alex Kirst dies and you don't even honor him with a photo - showing, instead, his more famous bandmate. I guess that knot in your stomach did not generate much feeling for the guy.
