The legendary Mark E. Smith, leader of one of the most important and influential bands of all time has died at the age of 60. According to Smith's manager Pam Van Damned, the legend passed away this morning at home. She also reveals that "a more detailed statement will follow in the next few days."

The news is so very upsetting and heartbreaking, but sadly it wasn't unexpected. Smith was in poor health over the last year and had canceled last year's U.S. tour and several shows in the U.K. because he was too sick to perform. In November a few fans who showed up to the Fall's canceled show in Bristol had reportedly been told by the Fall's inner circle that everyone was deeply concerned Smith's health was rapidly deteriorating. Smith remained optimistic and told fans he would reschedule shows and release more music soon. Alas, it was not to be.

How do you even begin to say goodbye to a legend? Words fail at this point. Smith was undeniably a uniquely talented and brilliant songsmith who brought a raucous energy and wit to the stage. He was an unusual rockstar that was so very un-rockstar-like. Truly a one-of-a-kind artist. There will never be another like MES.

R.I.P.












FYI: If you'd like to add to your Fall collection Cherry Red released a career-spanning anthology last year titled The Fall Singles 1978 - 2016. This is highly recommended for anyone looking to delve into this iconic band's catalog. There's a 7 disc deluxe edition (A-Sides + B-sides) or a three disc version with just the A-sides.
