Rest peacefully Brother Florian ! Kraftwerk were on of those bands that I tried to like but really didn't in the end.

RICHARD PENNIMAN  aka  LITTLE RICHARD

aged: 87

cause of death: bone cancer.

the article:  https://www.msn.com/en-au/entertainment/...spartandhp

the dude was a pioneer of Rock and Roll before anyone knew what it meant.
obviously, Presley was the figurehead, but the early black rockers were doing it back as early as 1949/50 and Penniman was one of those.
along with Chuck Berry he was the single biggest influence on just about every artist that followed him from Beatles,Stones, Robert Plant, AC/DC and beyond right through to modern R+B/funk singer Bruno Mars.

his full Wiki:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Richard

and now I take a couple of minute silence as I remember him in song, RIP Little Richard:





only Jerry Lee left from the original crop of rock and rollers!

PHIL MAY  (vocals for The Pretty Things)

band Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Things

UK blues rock band-cum-psychedelic rock band in the 1960s
Phil May remained vocalist/writer up until 2018 when he retired.

I couldn't remember the band so I asked my mum, she referred to them as a 'second rate Rolling Stones'.

I cant recall hearing the dude but vaguely remember his name popping up somewhere a few years ago for some reason.
supposedly as good a player, if not better than, his more famous Bro.

his biggest hit, a US top20 hit back in the 1970s:
