That's shocking news... I wouldn't say I was a big fan of Pete himself but he did make one of my favourite songs of all time!

57 is young to die and sympathies to his family
but his plastic surgery was very scary and like @Alexis I couldnt say i was a fan of his music

(PS heard a blast from the past on Steve Wright today, Marilyn (remember him??) was appearing with Boy George

Well I wasn't a big fan of all his music but I do love You Spin Me Round.

Marilyn! Ha.. I read recently that he was in a relationship with Gavin Rossdale in the 1980s. Rossdale denied it, but others have confirmed it.

I'm very surprised to read this...maybe his flamboyance seemed immortal.

Looks like it's gonna be a YSMR month, with lots of tribute covers and remixes.

Was this his last song?

Youthquake was a great pop album, you would probably enjoy.

Here's a little sample

My Heart Goes Bang (Get Me to the Doctor)



Love Come Back to Me

Marilyn (remember him??)
His 12" single of "Calling Your Name" is one of my favourtites



He was also part of a big 80s documentary series called Trailblazers, looking very different to his younger days.
