Kim Fowley has passed away.
Throughout his career, Fowley stepped in and out of popular music's limelight, yet remains best known for his work with the all-teen-female Runaways, whose Fowley-engineered aggressive sexuality and sound were unprecedented in the mid-'70s, and which spawned the careers of Joan Jett, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie. The group's history has been documented in biographies and the 2010 biopic The Runaways, directed by Floria Sigismondi and starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. Michael Shannon, later of Boardwalk Empire fame, portrayed Fowley in the film.

It is with deep regret and saddened hearts that we must tell you that Athon passed away this morning from injuries sustained from his motorcycle accident.

Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (The Mars Volta) has passed while on tour with Jack White.
It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans. Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects. Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled. We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.

Miss May I have released a second, longer statement about the passing of a fan at their concert.
Hey everyone, apologies for the radio silence these last couple of days. After what happened we've all taken some time to reflect but we had to speak up today to give our heartfelt thanks. First and foremost, to those who've reached out tooffer their sympathies or who've kept Alberto and his family in their thoughts and prayers. In particular to all those who donated to his family; after only a few days they have almost reached their fundraising goal. If you can spare any amount, no matter how small, it will be greatly appreciated. You can do so here.

We're also looking into an auction....

As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday nighttragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news.

Update 5/5, 11:21am ET: A Brooklyn Vegan post includes an update from the Studio at Webster Hall, which is the venue where the incident occurred: "Webster Hall says that despite what people are saying at Miss May I's Facebook, 'the patron in question did not die while stage diving. The patron collapsed while exiting the venue, as video footage and the police corroborate.'" The band is expected to make a statement once they are legally allowed to. We will keep this post updated. - Thomas Nassiff

Twenty years ago today, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. For the anniversary I've seen a variety of features go up talking about the best Nirvana songs and debating Nirvana's relative musical worth. While all of those features and debates are worth having -- I'm having a different time with it today. I apologize in advance for taking this to a slightly dark place, but last night I found out that my cousin, whom I spent much of my childhood with as he was only a year younger than me, took his own life. So, while the world remembers Kurt today -- I just need to take a moment to also draw attention to depression and the lifelong battle it brings upon...
