I know, got in my car at 7 o'clock this morning and the guy on the rock radio station was crying his eyes out at the news. Pretty gutted to be honest, he's one of those performers that affected everyone's life, whether they realise it or not.
It's immensely sad. I'm not a huge fan of his but I always liked him as an artist and as a person (from what I know of him). I particularly liked that he wasn't afraid to take the piss out of himself, he was very funny in Extras with Ricky Gervais.
The world has lost a true artist, a visionary in his field, an inspiration to generations.
