Bassist Pierre Kezdy has died.
The musician, who was battling cancer, was 58.
A veteran of the Chicago punk scene, Kezdy played bass with Naked Raygun, Pegboy and Strike Under.
The younger brother of John Kezdy, who’s best known for fronting the Chicago punk band Effigies, the Kezdy brothers played together in the Rainbow Girls.
Wielding his Gibson G3 bass, Kezdy played with jagged intensity and true punk rock muscle.
