The Last Chancer Who Survived





Norristown, PA

I'm a huge metal fan, yet I've always loved the Monkees. Lots of great music that even to this day doesn't sound dated or old-peopleish. I kinda grew up with their reruns before I got hooked on the Transformers.

Sucks to see another one go :(

Sad to report, but it seems Mark Hollis, singer of Talk-Talk has passed away. Reports thin on the ground, nothing on the BBC but the Grauniad is reporting it so I think it is genuine.

If you haven't heard of Talk-Talk, go to Youtube immediately, do not pass go, do not collect £200

Saw an article the other day (can't remember exactly when, but not seen in this thread), that Dick Churchill passed away.

His lay on fame was as the last surviving member of the RL "Great Escape" crew.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.

Probably gonna do the same here. Saw in a Guardian article that he apparently committed suicide. Absolutely not passing judgement, but I do hope that further reports shed more light into the situation (a la, Robin Williams and the issues we really didn't know about)

Yes, he did.

And 52 feels a little on the young side for this kind of illness/death too.

Or maybe not?

Scary stuff, potentially.

He was quite an unlucky individual by all accounts. Survived several near-fatal car accidents, ended up having the lower part of his leg amputated due to illness, suffered from drug addiction and financial ruin too.
