hearing that news was a real bummer..... 

and still somewhere Keith is snorting something up his nose, nailing some filly young enough to be his granddaughter and drinking Jack by the gallon.  

At this point he is likely to outlive all of us...

A man who gave up money and musical fame because he said he did not have time to be a family man if he continued to be a musician.... for me is a great, great respect and esteem, I'm really sorry

From synthpop new wave to hypnotic post-rock, 
you were the man who could make it Talk Talk 
RIP

Addio a Mark Hollis, il frontman dei Talk Talk aveva 64 anni

Great musician. The Colour of Spring stands out as a rare masterpiece in a barren period.
