Pat DiNizio, frontman for alt-rock-pop band The Smithereens, has died at the age of 62.

Pat was looking forward to getting back on the road and seeing his many fans and friends.

Band members said their "journey with Pat was long, storied and a hell of a lot of fun".

The talks between a section of Indian elite and some Pakistan nationals, some of whom are known to be well-meaning and interested in Indo-Pak amity, also can not be considered unjustified.

No particular cause of death was disclosed; however, it has been known that the musician had previously injured his neck and back during a fall.

DiNizio and three of his classmates at Carteret High School - guitarist Jim Babjak, bassist Mike Mesaros and drummer Dennis Dikenformed - started playing together in 1975 and formed the Smithereens in 1980. We grew up together.

Goodbye Pat. Seems like yesterday. The band gained a strong following in the New Jersey and NY area.

The Smithereens and DiNizio had a string of hit songs that have persisted among rock fans, from "A Girl Like You" and "Behind The Wall Of Sleep" to "Only a Memory" and "Blood and Roses".

The rock star made an unsuccessful run for a New Jersey seat in the United States Senate in 2000 with the campaign being chronicled in the documentary film, Mr. Smithereen Goes To Washington. The two follow-ups, Green Thoughts and 11, were college radio staples as well, and the band kept doing what they did best, releasing 11 albums overall, most recently 2011. But when you get married and have children and have a real job in the real world some things take priority and you become less active as a record buyer and a concertgoer.
