How sad.  My deepest sympathy to his family, friends, and all of those who have been touched by The Fall's music

Gutted.

Got to see his last ever gig, though, at the QMU back in November.

Been dreading this. Thanks for all the brilliant music Mark. And all that acerbic wit.

Gutted.

Thanks for everything, Mark. I measured the passage of my life by Fall albums and Fall gigs. All men die, but not all men live. You truly lived.
