If this is true (but I fear it is!) it's very sad news… Crying or Very sad

Apparently Mark Hollis has passed away recently, aged 64.

While there appears to be no official confirmation yet, there are numerous reports and statements from relatives and former Talk Talk members.

Such a great, sensitive and unique musician!

Very sad news. Talk Talk was one of my first favourite bands.

A huge loss. One of the very few vocals I really liked, let alone the excellent music both in Talk Talk and solo. RIP Sad

Listening to Talk Talk instantly takes me back to the summer of 1984. Wonderful time.

Thank you for the music (if I may quote ABBA).

Stephen

Someone shared this on FB, quite a fitting epitaph (and interesting read):
