Mark Hollis, Talk Talk star, dies at 64




Sad. Talk Talk were one of my favorite bands from the 80's. I still routinely listen to their albums.


Rest in Peace Mark.

"Mark Hollis, lead singer of 1980s band Talk Talk, has died at the age of 64, his former manager has confirmed.

"Sadly it's true," Keith Aspden said. "Mark has died after a short illness from which he never recovered."


Talk Talk achieved mainstream success with such hits as It's My Life and Such a Shame, but became increasingly insular and experimental over time.


After releasing a solo album in 1998, Hollis left music behind and removed himself from public view.

When asked about the decision, he said: "I choose for my family. Maybe others are capable of doing it, but I can't go on tour and be a good dad at the same time."


His final release was a solo album, also called Mark Hollis, in 1998..."

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.
