mark hollis was an icon... and someone i've looked up to for years. he chose family over fame and fortune...

but he still left behind some of the greatest, most inspiring music i've ever come across, and i'm sad to hear he's gone.

Yes, very sad but apparently its true. I didnt see this thread until now but said the following in the Music Diaries section:

AfterHours wrote:
Apparently, Mark Hollis has passed away at 64. Legendary vocalist and leader of Talk Talk, whose masterpieces Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock were hugely influential towards Post Rock (and slowcore) and whose career basically laid key elements of the groundwork for later, more famous and widely heralded bands such as Radiohead.

Hollis in many ways carried a mantle left behind by the incomparable (and still massively underrated) Tim Buckley.

Spirit of Eden, years ago, was one of the albums that changed my musical life, outside of Classical music and prior to many other discoveries. Along with Laughing Stock, they are in a sense, Messaien's Quartet for the End of Time for their generation: elemental, overcome by stillness and miraculous evocation, highly personal, enraptured, longing and intensely spiritual. Two of the miracles of Rock music, especially considering Talk Talk's rather unremarkable beginnings as (more or less) a Duran Duran spin off.

RIP Mark.

Hopefully a positive that will come from this is that his music will now be more dedicatedly explored and assimilated by many newer listeners.

RIP Keith Flint, we remember you, The Prodigy was the best foreign band in Russia in 90's, The Prodigy without Keith is not The Prodigy, I remember when I was a child he's really scares me, how that man was really punky, he's destruct himslef, so in rock music every second death is a suicide, I can't believe that((((((
He was gone after Chester, Chris and Dolores(((( Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

R.I.P. Keith Flint. A member of a band, who made some of the most banging tunes of electronic punk and hard-rock of all time. The Fat of The Land (along with the others), will always remain classic pieces.

R.I.P. XXXTentacion as well as all the others, remembered til kingdom come Sad ;_;

The Prodigy came along as I entered my 30's so I was never going to be part of the 'rave' scene, I had two toddling children at home by then. Yet records like 'Charly' (all 4 storming mixes of it on the cd single), Out of Space and Firestarter were so original and alive that even somebody like me couldn't help being impressed. The Prodigy were truly an inspired band for all times.
