Andy Rourke of my favorite 80s band The Smiths died at 59😢
Just seen it in the Guardian.
Well, that makes me sad.
An underrated bass player, I lived in the same town as him and saw him around over the years. Really sad to hear this.
This Charming Man
Sad times RiP Andy.
Sad news indeed.
He was indeed an underrated bass player (and drummer Mike Joyce improved tremendously over the few years the Smiths were together). One thing I loved about the Smiths is how you can pick out all the instruments/vocals but the sum is greater than the parts (ditto REM).
This Night Has Opened My Eyes for this morning!
