I just learned that Mikey Offender, most notably a member of legendary hardcore band The Offenders, has passed away. I have no idea of the circumstances surrounding his passing. Mikey’s contribution to hardcore punk is very impressive. Not only was he a member of The Offenders, but he also did time in DRI and MDC. He will be missed for sure and it’s a sad day in the world of punk rock. My condolences go out to his friends and family.
