Right, LIam is The Prodigy, if he'd killed himself the rest would have a fuckin problem. The question is: Does Liam want to go on without him? We'll see

Shocking news. RIP. What's gonna happen to The Prodigy now?
He didn't really sing on all that many tracks.

I am sure they can carry on just fine.

They'll do a tribute album with famous guest vocalists and it will be their best selling album. You just watch.
I think he was better than what you're giving him credit for.

I made no claims about the quality of his work, just the frequency of his appearances.

Despite dealing with a lot of major health issues the last decade plus, he was a powerhouse live act and a genuinely nice guy right up to the end. He played so aggressively that he'd shred sometimes half a dozen guitar pics per song.

About 6 years ago, he suffered through rectal cancer ....twice. Plus he suffered from diabetes. He was in renal failure and refused to go on dialysis. Part of his treatment for the cancer, a portion of his stomach and intestines were removed and was only able to poop through a stoma into a bag that he wore under his clothes. He *had* to keep playing live under those conditions just to make his monthly medical costs which were apparently over $5k a month on top of whatever insurance he had. Dale more than just about any artist I know typified the SoCal beach/surf culture to me - in fact, he practically single handedly invented it.

These are just a couple of my favorite clips of his:

RIP Ranking Roger..

I saw The English Beat in the early 80s when they played in Toronto for the first time. I was in grade 9 and went with my friend and her older brother. Man, I still remember how hot and ram-jammed the venue was;the floor was actually heaving. What a great show and great memories for me..

I can (kv edit) make this link fit the youtube format here...but anyway, some good concert footage from 1980

I saw The English Beat open for The Clash at the Hollywood Palladium in '82. Not at all my kind of music at the time but wound up really enjoying their set.

RIP Ranking Roger..

I know only me knows about this musician, but it has been brutal for us.
He was one of the founders of one of the most beloved Mexican bands "La Botellita de Jerez". He killed himself because someone denounced him in a #metoo post. Basically, the post talked about an alleged sexual harassment towards a 13 year old. He left an audio to a close friend saying that no matter what, even if they found this false, his career and life were finished (he not only was a musician, he was also a children's book writer). He left a suicidal note on his twitter account and hung himself early morning on Monday.
Totally gutted to be honest, because some posts shared on these #metoo twitter or fb accounts, especially the ones related to musicians or actors, sound like really silly stories, fabricated just to hang on someone famous to prove themselves.
Armando Vega Gil, bass player and co-founder of the Mexican rock band Botellita de Jerez, killed himself on Monday, after being accused of sexually abusing a minor. He was 64.

The Reuters news agency reports that his body was found at his home in Mexico City by local authorities. A representative for the band, Paola Hernandez said that she spoke to him by phone at 2a.m., approximately two hours before his death.

Before he died, Vega Gil posted a suicide message on Twitter. He strongly denying the accusations that had been made anonymously via the @MeTooMusicaMX account on Twitter.

“Let me make it clear that my death is not a confession of guilt, on the contrary it is a radical declaration of my innocence,” he wrote (in Spanish) on Twitter. “Don’t blame anyone for my death, this suicide is a voluntary, free and personal decision. Hasta pronto.” He said, given the power of social media, he believed that he would not be able to clear his name and that he wanted to make sure that his son’s life was not blighted by the accusations.
Vega Gil’s accuser said that the incident happened 13 years ago, when she was 13. She accused him of inviting her to his home, where his sexual advances allegedly included his offering to teach her how to kiss.
