Very sad news.

At least we have his legacy of some fantastic music.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

I'm a bit tired tonight and so not really functioning at optimum level so I've had to re-read that article about three times just to confirm it in my head. The last name I would have expected, for some reason.

Oh, and Mick Karn of Japan appears also to have passed away:

I liked just about everything he did. Untimely death, though he did live the wild life, and presumably it's taken its' toll. 63 is no age to die these days.
However, as Mr S points out, he's left us with a great music legacy.

Yup only heard about this later this evening. The BBC are not even reporting it yet and are only covering Gerry Rafferty

You can only expect selective reporting from the :zbc:

Sad news on both counts though
