Dave Blood, bassist of the near-legendary and now-defunct indie punks the Dead Milkmen, passed away on March 10th. His sister Kathy posted the news on the Dead Milkmen message board, saying:

"My brother was a smart clever and talented person. Inner peace has seemed to elude him for the last many years. Sometime last night David chose to end his life. He left a note that I don't know all of what it said,he was not elaborate-but he said he just could not stand to go on any longer."

There will be a memorial service in the Delaware County area in the coming weeks; we'll bring you more news on that as we have it.

Our condolences go out to the friends, family, and fans of Dave Blood.
