After nearly a full year of battling with cancer, Micky Fitz, frontman of UK punk/Oi! band The Business, has passed away. Fitz was diagnosed in 2015 with cancer on the lymph gland as he went through radiotherapy in hopes to recover. However, his struggle is over and his memory will remain. The Business is part of the British Oi! Movement. Fitz was the “Suburban Rebel” that didn’t appear to have a filter living his life not giving a damn what people thought of him. Our deepest condolences go out to Fitz’s friends, family and bandmates.
A handful of tributes are rolling in from some of the bands they influenced:
