The Smithereens Lead Singer Pat DiNizio Dead At 62

Sad news today as we received word that Pat DiNizio passed away. The band posted on their social media announcing his passing.

The New Jersey band formed in 1980 and became a staple in their home state. They received national recognition from songs like "A Girl Like You", "Only A Memory", and "Behind The Wall Of Sleep". Our thoughts are with the band and DiNizio's family.
