Mark E Smith dead: The Fall’s lead singer dies aged 60
Punk singer died was forced to cancel shows last year amid reports of ill health
The Fall’s lead singer Mark E Smith has died. He was 60.
The band’s manager and Smith’s partner, Pam Van Damned, made the announcement via The Fall Online.
“It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith,” she said in a statement.
“He passed this morning at home. A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days.
“In the meantime, Pam & Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time.”
It had been reported that Smith was ill for some time, which led to show cancellations in late 2017.
In October, he performed at a Wakefield concert in a wheelchair.
Tributes were led by Smith’s former wife and ex-band member, Brix Smith Start, who posted: “I’m taking the news in right now. I will put a statement out tomorrow. I hope you will all understand.
“Thank you for your lovely messages, they mean a lot. I love you, Brix”.
The band became a part of the 1970s punk movement and, while it went through several line-up changes, Smith was the founder and constant member of the band.
The Fall never quite found commercial success, but helmed a cult fan base care of their 32 studio albums.
Their most successful single was a cover version of the Kinks’ “Victoria”.
The band’s most recent record New Facts Emerge came out in 2017.
The Fall’s Mark E Smith was the voice of the northern working-class culture that inspired him, says DAVID WILKINSON.
