I think it's time to start a new Dead Souls thread since there was an excessive amount of unfortunate deaths in 2016 and some really bad ones (except for Charles Manson) last year.

With that said, here's an unfortunate start in Jerry Van Dyke at age 86: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/06/obituaries/jerry-van-dyke-dead.html

I will not be at all surprised when it comes to light that whatever medications she was on to treat her severe back pain issues the last couple years played a role in her death. 46 is much too young. The Cranberries had to cancel most of their world tour last year because of that, but just last month she posted on FB that she was finally feeling better and did her first gig in some time at in industry event in NYC. Meh. RIP indeed :(

I had to correct my post because i mistakenly called them Last Spine Down instead of Left Spine Down. Freudian slip perhaps.

Yeah i was fortunate to see him perform with LSD a few times when i lived in Alberta and i got to meet him too! It's so totally out of nowhere that this happened, i didn't know he had such an ailment and that it become that bad. Truly awful!

^ huge bummer. i've gone through several Fall obsessions over the years, though I haven't really listened to them much in recent years. fond memories of seeing The Fall in 2005 in NYC, waiting hours for them to come on stage with no openers, playing mostly new music for 50 minutes. On the final encore song, "New Big Prinz," Mark tossed the mic into the crowd and me and this other huge fan took turns singing the lyrics...

RIP Mark, thanks for everything.

Urgh this one hurts...been listening to The Fall for years, Mark E Smith was so one of a kind, he never stopped gigging or releasing music ever in 40 years, was always active. 35 albums. Such a big discography. So influential.
Saw the Fall live a few times last time was in 2006, been meaning to see them again. Fuck.

I would go on binges with his music about once a year for a few weeks. Loved listening to the more obscure albums.
Its not exactly suprising news, considering how much he drank im amazed he made it to 60 lol.
I knew he had been unwell recently, he had been in a wheelchair and totally incoherent at gigs in past year.
But yeah going to go on another fall binge this week probably.

Mark E Smith is a shock, G and I were shocked to discover that he was only 60, he looked far older and really feeble. As said, he’d been reported to be ill but nobody knew why.

We saw The Fall a few times, and one show is on our Top Five shows of All Time, at the Metro in Chicago, I think in around 2005, they didn’t go on stage until around 1 am, then Mark sat at a long conference table all night with various mics, holding them up in various directions, and sometimes getting up and walking around, but it was all TIGHT and MEZMERIZING and INTENSE and unforgettable.

RIP, Mark. You are a legend.

I was *literally* just thinking about that as I listened to the last episode the other day. I started with "I wonder why they stopped offering his voice as the prize" and then, sadly, my mind did drift to "I hope he's just enjoying a relaxing retirement". But then I started thinking about how little effort it takes to record a greeting, and my mind went down a darker path. Sad to see that theory confirmed. With all due respect to Bill Kurtis, there was just something special about WWDTM when Carl was the host.

Carl's final show can still be heard here (https://www.npr.org/programs/wait-wait-dont-tell-me/313171422/wait-wait-dont-tell-me-for-may-17-2014?showDate=2014-05-17). I think I may give it a listen tonight.
