RIP Mark E Smith

Postby billy » 24 Jan 2018, 19:52

FALL NEWS:

The day I've been dreading.

"It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith. He passed this morning at home.... 1/2

More
"... A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days. In the meantime, Pam & Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time." 2/2

That's really too bad. He was one of a kind. I've been catching to the Fall for the last 12 years and probably will be in 12 more years time.

I also have to respect that he was up there giving what he could up to his last days.

I might write more later.

Bugger. I knew he'd been very ill, but it's still very sad to hear he's gone.

Music, England and Salford have lost one of their great characters and artists.

RIP Mark, thanks for everything.
