A fine singer, Colin 'Black' Vearncombe has passed away. He was a victim of a car accident in Cork. I know him for his 1987 hit 'Wonderful Life' (recently butchered by Katie Melua).

Here is the track which I post in tribute:

Sad. A mate helped Colin to dust himself down and record 'Wonderful Life' when he was badly on his uppers back in the 80's :(

I listened to it this morning, and apart from the single chorus line I thought it was dreary and boring
