Andy Gill, Influential Guitarist of Gang of Four, Dies at 64



Damn, a complete shock. Gang of Four influenced so may bands. Especially Andy's guitar playing.

I'm speechless...

RIP rose

"Andy Gill, whose slashing, dissonant guitar playing in Gang of Four inspired waves of post-punk to come, died on Saturday in London. He was 64.

The band announced his death on its website. A band spokesman said the cause was pneumonia".
