I heard this the other day. So sad - for some random reason, he and I chatted when MySpace was a thing and he was so kind. Really hoping he pulls through.

Shit I saw an interview with him the other day and he was very positive about his treatment.
A sad day.

Only 56, ffs.

Saw him at The Cluny 2 years ago, great gig. Also heard him on Liz Kershaw's 6 Radio show a couple of months ago and he was on good form.

Yeah, that surprised me. Didn't realize he was that young.

Funny how 50 can seem old when you're in your 20s.
