Andy Rourke, the bass player in The Smiths has died aged 59.
He lost his life to cancer.

They are my all time favourite band.

Very sad Fanny. He was so talented, 59 is no age at all.

I'm a fan of The Smiths too. So sad to die of pancreatic cancer and only 59 too. RIP.

Thanks for all the wonderful music!
There'll never be another band like that!
