I love The Cranberries. So young and so sad especially as she leaves 3 kids. RIP.
Also from Chairmen of the Board co-founder Danny Woods at 73. There only chart entry here was the song "Give Me Just a Little More Time" in 1970 (later covered by Kylie Minogue.

Also my Cranberries singer passing article with Oz chartifacts too.

It was pretty tough hearing about Dolores' passing. The Cranberries were a big part of my late teens.

Here's my top 5 singles by The Cranberries:

1. Zombie (1994)
2. Ode to My Family (1995)
3. Linger (1993)
4. Salvation (1996)
5. Dreams (1994)

Mark Salling, formerly of Glee has been found dead - of an apparent suicide - at the age of 35.
Social media has turned quite hostile over this one - as the circumstances are quite ugly. I'm not going to make any comment.

Jóhann Jóhannsson, film composer best known for his work with Denis Villeneuve and on The Theory of Everything, passed away at 48 years old.

local 60's & 70's singer Jeff St. John passed at the age of 71.

I love Jeff's recording of "Fool In Love", along with the ID singles.
Ken Dodd at the age of 90.


He had a Top 10 hit here in 1965 with "Tears".
This is just really odd. He hasn't performed in a couple of years since that health-hiatus and he has looked unhealthy every time I've seen him since then.

And why would he be in Oman of all places

That is horrible news. I liked most of his music too and seen him perform a number of times.

Silouette was my fave track of his.

RIP to someone so young and talented.
That's sad and unexpected news
28 is way too young! Really sad news
wow, I have no words, how incredibly sad for someone whose life is really only beginning
still don't want to believe it. His music dramatically shaped my music tastes so this really hits hard
I'm finding the news particularly tough too. Gone far too soon.
Shocking news to hear this morning, RIP Avicii. Far too young
Way too young to die. Rest in peace
Avicii's family has just released a statement about his death. It's really sad.


Please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 if you ever need somebody to talk to. It can be a life-saver (speaking from personal experience).
Wow, the worse possible way he could've died. So sad to see someone take their own life
Well damn, especially with him being the same age as me and all.
Four months later and I'm still heartbroken over Dolores O'Riordan. One of my favorite singers ever. RIP
Lead singer of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit Scott Hutchinson has died aged just 36. RIP

Damn. They are one of my favourite bands and have charted many songs on my personal charts.
Phil Emmanuel, Australian guitarist, has died. He was best known as a member of the Emmanuel Brothers.

American rapper XXXTentacion has died at the age of 20. https://pitchfork.com/news/xxxtentacion-shot-dead-at-20/
Sad! news.
For all the metal heads out there, the king of skins and legendary Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul has passed away at age 54

Richard Swift, former member of The Shins and The Arcs has died, aged 41.

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of soul, has died.

Huge legend - just listening to a lot of her songs today and remembering how many are jams. Particularly love that late 60s early 70s period. Such beautiful, timeless songs. R.I.P.
Ed King, member of Lyryrd Skynyrd, and songwriter of Sweet Home Alabama, of cancer.

Conductor and Music Educator Richard Gill has died after a year long battle with cancer. He was 76.

This man has been an inspiration to me for many years.

Too young
Joshua Fauver, former bassist for Deerhunter has died, aged 39.
Lead singer and founding member of Buzzcocks Pete Shelley has died aged 63. Suspected heart attack.
The news of my longtime friend Craig Blair's passing yesterday at only 54 was to say the least a shock to me and my partner, having known Craig since the late 1980's when he and I became fast chart-friends and then eventual best friends, both excelling in our music knowledge and chart histories, for which I will be truly grateful for.

It's true that this chartophile had someone else better than him with the knowledge of music charts, but that only helped to expand my own personal knowledge and music history to where it is today and without Craig being the catalyst to make me strive to be a better historian of music and charts I wouldn't be where I am today.

His vast amount of collected charts is only rivalled by one person in this country, plus his unique record collection, not only endeared him to me but also gave me direction to what kind of musicphile I wanted to become in time.

Blessed be the Wombat (his nick name).

{whilst I know this forum is for passed musicians, this is one person who influenced me more than any other}.

Regards, bulion.
I don't think anyone minds the slight tangent in cases like this, very sorry for your loss bulion
Condolences mate, Losing a friend sucks. Stay strong.
I'm very saddened to hear of your loss Bulion
So sorry to hear bulion. My thoughts are with you mate. Condolences to you and your family and friends.

RIP Keith Flint. Sad day
Prodigy were amazing. I saw them live four times and still one of the best live shows I have been to. Big loss and he sure will be seen as an iconic artist. I teach a unit about how music changes over the decades and has an influence in our lives and the Prodigy is an artist I use for the 90's and the kids enjoy watching him.

Ranking Roger of The Beat died yesterday. I only just took his latest song out of my weekly chart last week.
Seattle singer Shawn Smith who was in the band Brad with Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard has passed away aged 53 after complications with diabetes.

Reportedly passing away on April 5th, a date that has become synonymous with Seattle’s music scene – and not in a good way – Smith’s death shares its date with the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who passed away April 5 1994, and Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley, who died April 5 2002.

One of my favourite jazz albums was 1964's Getz/Gilberto with saxophonist Stan Getz, which I own on vinyl - always a great listen.
