Mark E Smith


I've just seen a post by Dave Haslam on social media saying that Mark E Smith has died at the age of 60. He doesn't seem to have been in the best of health recently but it is still sad and shocking news. He was a true one-off, a maverick, a wordsmith and a visionary. He will be missed.

I second that. Seemed like he would be around forever. One of those, "what's keeping him up" fellas.

Hard to believe that there will be a "last" Fall album.
