Ranking Roger from The Beat has died, aged 56. I saw him in The Beat two or three years ago, and his energy was amazing.

One of my faves from way back.





RIP Roger.

Everyone I've never heard of is dying.

Extraordinary. The Beat were massive back in the early '80s - maybe not so much in the US where they were known as The English Beat. The lead singer, Dave Wakeling is still over there performing.
