Glamobit: Alex Kirst

Alex Kirst has been killed by a hit-and-run driver.

Kirst was drummer with The Nymphs; the New Jersey act relocated to LA with high hopes but managed only one album before they split. More recently, Kirst had been drumming for Iggy Pop after the band he formed with his brother, The Trolls, became Pop's backing group of choice.

Alex Kirst was 47 years old; he died after being struck by a car in Cathedral City last week.
