Former AC/DC Bassist Dies
Former AC/DC and Rose Tattoo bassist Neil Smith has died after a battle with cancer. Smith was in AC/DC in 1974, prior to the release of their 1975 debut album "High Voltage," Ultimate Classic Rock reports. In a message posted on the Australian musician's official Facebook page (as reported by NineMSN), Smith's family revealed the sad news and paid tribute to him. "Neil Smith passed away in the early hours of the morning, Sunday the 7th of April 2013. He was sleeping peacefully and surrounded by family. Neil is now in peace and is no longer battling with cancer. There is not a person out there who has met him and not felt like their lives were better for the experience. He was a loving and devoted father, a loyal friend and all round generous person. He was larger than life, and his passing will be felt." They went on to thank his friends and loved ones for helping Smith face his cancer battle: "Thanks to all his friends for their support and love, especially during the final stages of his life."
