So sad to report that Smithereens lead singer and brilliant songwriter Pat DiNizio passed away at only 62.
Smithereens‘ singer/songwriter Pat DiNizio, lead guitarist Jim Babjak, & big thumper Dennis Diken love rock and roll as much as any three people I’ve ever known. Against unbelievable odds, they continued to entertain people for the sheer joy of making a big noise. Here they are live and unplugged on my Q102 Dallas radio show. –Redbeard
Sincere heartfelt condolences to L-R guitarist Jim Babjak, drummer Dennis Diken, Pat in the hat, and bass player of The Smithereens.
