Mark E. Smith, leader of the UK post-punk group The Fall, has been dealing with serious health problems for months now, and sadly, the worst has happened: Smith has passed away at 60 years old.
The band’s manager Pam Van Damned has shared a brief statement that reads:
“It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mark E. Smith. He passed this morning at home. A more detailed statement will follow in the next few days. In the meantime, Pam and Mark’s family request privacy at this sad time.”
