Talk Talk's Mark Hollis passed away last month at the age of 64. Where else can you turn when musicians you love pass away? KEXP celebrated Hollis' life by playing Talk Talk all throughout the day the news broke.
Simon Le Bon from Duran Duran said: “We, Duran Duran, are very sorry to learn that one of music’s great innovators Mark Hollis has died. The band Talk Talk, which he co-founded and fronted, were on tour with us in 1982; it made for a tremendous & very entertaining bill. Mark was the main songwriter of some truly great songs, including ‘It’s My Life’ & ‘It’s A Shame’.
In 1988 the extraordinary album ‘Spirit of Eden’ was released. His talent will be remembered & his music will live on.”
