Iggy Pop drummer Alex Kirst killed aged 47

Iggy Pop's former drummer and The Nymphs musician Alex Kirst has been killed in a hit-and-run accident in the US, aged 47.

Police say the musician was walking along a desert road in California when he was struck. Officers said there was no evidence the vehicle had braked.

The Nymphs disbanded after their only album release in 1991.

Kirst and his brother Whitey joined Pete Marshal to form The Trolls, backing Iggy Pop on some of his albums.

They played on the Beat 'Em Up and Skull Ring records.
