Iron Chic

Robert Mcallister, the recently-departed guitarist of Long Island punk band Iron Chic, has sadly passed away. The band posted on Facebook:

It is with the heaviest of hearts and deepest regrets that we must say goodbye to a dear friend. Although we had recently parted ways it makes the reality no easier to bear. Every wild ride must come to an end so rest in peace Robert Mcallister and give our regards to Lemmy. We'll miss you always.

Rest in peace, Robert. You'll be missed.

Iron Chic have upcoming shows, including Brooklyn with Worriers in February, and Asbury Park's Punk Rock Bowling in June (which just went on sale).
