Pat Dinizio, lead singer and songwriter for the Smithereens, has passed. A great, underrated band. Power pop, hard rock, ballads - they did them all. Had the pleasure of seeing them when I was a kid.

 A true talent. RIP.

I wasn't a huge fan but NYC rock radio played the hell out of the Smithereens in the 1980s and if I didn't love every song, I can't say I ever switched the station.

"Blood and Roses" and "Behind the Wall of Sleep" are definitely classic songs. I do wonder if DiNizio's romantic torment ever ended -- it always seemed like it was based in real life, not just a topic for songs.

I hadn't even heard this until checking out the Music forum today. I was a fan back in the 80s. Sorry to hear of his death.
