RIP Mark E Smith
Mark E Smith, the heart of The Fall and long time John Peel favourite, has died. He was 60.
The official statement is brief: “It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith. He passed this morning at home. A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days. In the meantime, Pam & Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time.”
A highly divisive figure, Smith nonetheless maintained a legendary status.
