Roger Miret (Agnostic Front)

Justin Borucki

New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front have revealed that vocalist Roger Miret was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, culminating in "a complex surgery and lengthy hospital stay."

Fortunately, the band reports that the surgery was successful and Miret is "now in complete remission."

Regardless, Miret is now dealing with the financial fallout of his diagnosis and treatment, prompting a GoFundMe campaign to be launched on his behalf.

The following information was shared with the fundraising initiative:

Earlier this year, Agnostic Front's vocalist Roger Miret was diagnosed with cancer. A long road of tests and diagnoses lead to a complex surgery and lengthy hospital stay. Even though the surgery was complicated the results were extremely positive. The cancer was successfully removed and we are very relieved to say that Roger is now in complete remission and that all signs of cancer have disappeared.

With the joy of knowing that Roger is now cancer free also comes the bitter reality of months of treatment and Roger and his family are dealing with the financial backlash of a cancer diagnosis. Today we are calling upon our beloved worldwide music scene, friends and family, o please share this fundraiser and donate what you can, during these difficult times. From our family to yours, a heartfelt thank you for your support and contribution!

We ask you to please respect Roger and his family's privacy while they continue on their journey of recovery.

The blood, the honor, the truth! Get Well Roger!!

Cancer is just a hoax, if there wasn't a trillion dollar snake oil industry around it we would never hear about it. Im glad Roger is feeling better but he (or his insurance) were scammed of $100k+++

Universal Healthcare isn't stoked

Glad they brought back anonymous comments on here but it also gives way to the f*cking inept morons who literally have no idea what they're talking about. Glad a true legend is doing alright. Half the bands everyone talks about on here wouldn't be around if it wasn't for AF.

anonymous 44 days ago

I'll spare a few for the funeral but if he's alive he could play some shows or design some new tshirts. Hardcore ain't a charity.

Nice DMS scam Bet Hoya put him up to it Who's the next DMS dude to get cancer / go fund me? It's about 1 per month now


anonymous 43 days ago

ey b0ss i have a cancer


anonymous 43 days ago

I'm glad Roger beat the cancer but I don't see why he needs at least 75K considering his economic stature. He's a union journeyman electrician with full benefits or an electrical contractor who pulls down at least a grand in door and merch money a show in a band he's been doing for almost four decades. So he basically has two full-time pay level salaries if not three. Besides that his bandmate Vinny owns an entire apartment building in Manhattan he (Vinny) collects rent on dozens of apartments from, minimum 3K a month per apartment.


anonymous 43 days ago

Because they are republican grifters, any chance and excuse they got they try to milk more money out of it. f*ckers


anonymous 43 days ago

Also you know there'll be a benefit for him which'll draw minimum 1000 paid @ $30 = 30K × .6 = 18K ($750 shy of a quarter of 75K) raised. And where's minimun 10K each from Roger's half brother Freddy, Toby H20, Tim Armstrong, and Sick Of It All for another 40K and 58K total from those four and a benefit.


anonymous 43 days ago

75K raised like this: 20K NYC benefit 10K Madball 10K Sick Of It All 10K H20 10K Rancid 10K Vinny Stigma 5K Boston Hardcore


anonymous 43 days ago

Remember when Jimmy "Gestapo" Drescher vocalist for Murphy's Law (really Murphy's Law cover band with him being the only original member of he calls that) having 50K raised for him for gall bladder surgery (from years of alcohol abuse, partying etc.) despite him being a union elevator mechanic and making at least 60% of ML show pay plus 100% of merch sales...then there's a pic of him riding a Harley Davidson? I do. Grifters one and all - NYHC.

Gulch farewell tour is just a cashgrab. They are about merch not music.


anonymous 43 days ago

So selling merch is a cash grab and bad, but literally asking people to donate and receive nothing in return is not a cash grab?


anonymous 43 days ago

Rick a real one. I text him all the time just asking him random questions about hardcore. He is always a good sport and answers everything. Nice guy. He is 100% right about DMS (dudes may scam), really eye opening stuff about dudes you used to look up to


anonymous 43 days ago

I was kinda hoping Mr 100 percent Cuban wouldn't have beat it. So agnostic c*nts can be put out of there misery the bands message is so fake. I roadied for Af in 91/92. We played for the kkk we stayed with the kkk the kkk fed us. Roger Vinny Freddy we're all down with the kkk. Til roger got stomped out By the Nazi skinheads. Then he became Mr Cuban. Freddy rocked a skrewdriver t shirt giving too him by uncle nick ydl. Nick ydl got all those dudes Down with the white power skinhead movement. Nick ydl had it right in the way back skinhead 88. Standing tall n proud. Yo American uprise new cd. Out on. Kkk records. Late this year. Nyhc is dead. Hipster core lives.


anonymous 43 days ago

Yes, announcing a band break up with a farewell tour having blacked out dates going all the way to March and limited edition merch for what reason when the band will be done is a cashgrab. So is begging for 75K when you're a two or three income dude with healthcare, a mulitmillionaire bandmate, and monied friends who could easily gift you 75K. I never said Roger wasn't cashgrabbing you dipshit.


anonymous 42 days ago

There is no way in hell any old nyhc guy is a millionaire


anonymous 42 days ago

^ Vinny Stigma owns a huge apartment building on Mott Street he inherited from his family. He collects monthly rent on DOZENS of apartments. He has earned millions of dollars a year from this building for decades and could sell it for minimum 15M - he's a multimillionaire.


anonymous 42 days ago

^ Mott Street, Little Italy, Manhattan, NYC. Minimum 3K rent a month per apartment x at least 30 apartments = 90K a month x 12 months = 1.08M a year x ? years. Figure it out Sparky.

^^ CAREFUL DUDE MAY SUE


anonymous 42 days ago

The origin (or what I'm guessing is the origin) of DMS = Dudes May Sue: The two members of DMS Harley stabbed with either his knife or theirs didn't cooperate with the Manhattan District Attorney i.e. they went radio silent so Harley got off the hook. After that one of these DMS saps Mike Couls tried to sue Webster Hall for not having good enough security to stop Harley from stabbing him and the other DMS sap William "Ratbones" Berario. The court did not hear the case because neither sap cooperated in the criminal case. Couls was kicked out of DMS for this as they saw him as jeopardizing the venue for their gimmicky played out Black 'n' Blue Bowl.

If he needs 75K why is the GoFundMe at just under 104K now? So if it ends at say 150K or double the goal he'll put aside that second 75K to pay it forward right? How does he, a union electrician or self-employed electrical contractor with full benefits who makes a decent or more than decent living on his 40 year old band alone (a band he's been in 1981-93 & since 1995) including at least 60% of show pay and 100% of band merchandise he splits with his multimillionaire bandmate Vinny Stigma 50/50 plus membership dues for his car club, owns the house below, has MANY monied friends, and cash in the bank need 75K? Yeah, he REALLY needs 75K living in this house: https://modernphoenix.net/hometour/2015/miret.htm He could've raised 75K like this: 40K benefit (1000 paid people @ $40) 10K limited edition merch 5K from each: Sick Of It All, Madball, H20, Rumblers Car Club He is a scamartist and every person who donates to him is a mark.


anonymous 42 days ago

^ I forgot to add 5K from Rancid or the rest of NYHC bands (grand each from Murphy's Law, John Joseph's Cro-Mags "Cro-Mags JM", Gorilla Biscuits, Youth Of Today & Judge.) So 40K benefit + 10K limited merch + 5K Sick Of It All + 5K Madball + 5K H20 + 5K Rumblers Car Club + 5K Rancid or a grand each from Murphy's Law, Cro-Mags GM, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth Of Today & Judge = 75K, no GoFundMe needed. Oh yeah - if he's a union man where's his worker's compensation, low interest personal loan, and fellow union members tossing him a few bucks? He has no savings or just savings bearing interest or no interest? No investments, stocks, bonds, bills, cds, retirement account, index fund, emergency fund? I know he doesn't drink, smoke, or do drugs so he doesn't blow money on that. Grifter.


anonymous 42 days ago

I thought vinnie just owned the apartment he lives in and not the whole building


anonymous 42 days ago

^ That is the what some say. Others say he owns the whole building. Ratbones as far as I know was never DMS. Just a groupie

anonymous 42 days ago

Stigma has lived rent free his whole life. He was givin his home. And inherited the family building. Worth 15 to 18 million.


anonymous 42 days ago

^ Correct. Vinny inherited an entire building with at least 30 apartments on Mott Street in the Little Jtaly neighborhood of Manhattan NYC. Minimum 3K per month per unit. Say he sold that building for a cool 30M and made half that after taxes. He could give Roger a mil in cash off the books and still have a 14M cash. Say his apartment building has exactly 30 rental units. He could let Roger and his family live there rent-free like he (Vinny) does and still make out like a bandit. Vinny could hypothetically play in AF for nothing for the money he rakes in on Building He Inherited From Momma. He could open an all ages live music venue in Manhattan. But Vinny won't do any of that cuz he's a greedy lucky idiot.


anonymous 42 days ago

Ok. But can anyone answer as to why Lord Ezec is dressing like a 12 year old?


anonymous 42 days ago

^ Because 50 year old neverwas c-rapper Danny Singer (Ezec's real name) has the mentality of a 12 year old. Love his Ronald McDonald hairdo LOL. He is afraid to fight Harley Flanagan in a street OR ring fight and for good reason: Harley would beat him so bad Ezec would never talk or walk again. Ezec is all talk no walk. He never beat up anyone as big as or bigger than him. He almost got stabbed to death twice decades apart yet acts like he won when he's an 0-2 loser. People don't love or even like him they fear him. Sick Of It All, Quicksand - all sane NYHC dudes like them privately say Ezec is a wackjob.


anonymous 42 days ago

Alot of people badmouth Rick Ta Life but let's get down to brass tacks: Rick put out records, ran a distro, booked or got bands on shows, played/toured left and right, shouted out/plugged bands, I think even put out a fanzine. Ezec has done none of that. In the end more people will listen to, talk about, and remember 25 Ta Life and Comin Correct than Crown Of Thornz or Skar Head.
