We lost a good one today. Mark Lanegan has passed away at the age of 57. He was a member of Screaming Trees, Mad Season and had a riveting solo career that conjured up Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.
Mark lived as hard as the lyrical content as his songs suggests. And now he has joined, in this order, Andrew Wood, Kurt Cobain, Layne Stakey, Scott Weiland and Chris Cornell at that great gig in the sky. In fact, Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam is about the only prominent vocalist left from that famous Seattle era.
