Kennedys remove Flouride

The never-been-the-same-since-Jello-quit Dead Kennedys are another member down - Klaus Fluoride has decided that thirty years is enough:

Over the past thirty years, I have had the great fortune to have been a founding member of Dead Kennedys, It’s been tough at times but particularly rewarding working and collaborating with men like Biafra, 6025, D.H., Brandon, Jeff, Ted, Dave, Steve, Skip and especially Ray. However a recurring medical condition called Angioedema has caused me to make the difficult decision to begin withdraw from the road and as a touring member of Dead Kennedys. Thus I have taken my leave as a performing member of the band for the foreseeable future.

It's not the end of Fluoride playing live, as - like most punk musicians - he also plays in another seventeen thousand bands.
