Reports Of Ian MacKaye's Death False

Various reports announcing that legendary hardcore punk icon Ian MacKaye (MINOR THREAT, FUGAZI, Dischord Records) died on Monday night in Baltimore are false. The Baltimore Sun has reported that he is indeed alive after speaking to him on the phone today. He told the newspaper that, “I am happy to report that I am not dead.”
