Mark Hollis, Talk Talk star, dies at 64
BBC.co.uk, 26th February 2019.
Love the track... RIP Mark
Such a shame (pun intended). I loved his work with Talk Talk, and I possess his solo album although I must confess that despite repeated listenings I've never got into it. 64 is far too young to die.
My favourite 80s song. RIP.
Very true... though it seems to have shifted.
When I was a kid 64 seemed a decent age... now with lifespans extending it seems tragically young.
Either that or I'm getting closer to 64 myself and don't want to depart early.
Yes indeed, tragically young. Life expectancy used to be regarded as three score years and ten but so many people exceed that these days. Well, if it is still the case, I can enjoy another ten years...
I first sawTalk Talk when they supported Duran Duran back in the early 80s. I saw them at the Birmingham Odeon and was immediately captivated. I have probably only seen Talk Talk live maybe 3 or 4 times, but absolutely loved them. I remember being beside myself with joy when my mum bought me their first album for Christmas!
@lardylady That's my favourite.
I like some of the more beautifully ambient stuff they did later too.
What a loss.
I saw Talk Talk as well and I have their "best of" album
He had a unique voice
Really sad about this. They were an amazing band. RIP
A very underrated band.
