Unsung legend gone ,look at the music left behind, a bit it & miss- but when it hit , lyrics un parrelleld ! Lifted average musicians , imperfection can be better than perfection , he new this , you can feel this in the music . Will never be anyone like this again , 40 odd years with edge . & compliments to all who performed .

What a massive loss, saw The Fall so many times & as has been said every Gig was a highlight, you also had to expect the unexpected, playing with the Muso's amps, singing behind doors, going off pissed & coming back on straight and playing a blinder, the Man was an absolute legend, totally gutted i'll never see them Live again, just hope there's a lot of Material hidden away in the Vaults somewhere?
