According to Variety, DiNizio dealt with several health issues in recent years. Two separate falls called serious nerve damage, resulting in the loss of the use of his right arm in 2015. The Smithereens were forced to cancel a show earlier this year after DiNizio injured his neck and back in another slip. The band was scheduled to kick off another road tour in January, starting at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank.
We are heartbroken at the news that Pat DiNizio has passed away. He is one of many who championed rock and roll and helped put New Jersey on the map as a destination for so much sound. He will be missed by those of us in the business, his peers, his friends and fans, Godspeed

“Pat was looking forward to getting back on the road and seeing his many fans and friends. Please keep Pat in your thoughts and prayers,” the Facebook post read.

Other hits from the band included “Blood and Roses,” “Behind the Wall of Sleep” and “Strangers When We Met.”
