    Sorry for his family and friends.

    It was a courageous battle with lung cancer. No one battles LONG with lung cancer. It's deadly.

    That's so sad! I just saw him and the band a month ago at SXSW. My thoughts are with him and his family.

    Terrible news. They were a ground-breaking group, and Brooklyn and NYC are so proud of them.
    Rest in peace.
