A Black day...RIP Colin Vearncombe
Whilst it was expected the sad news that Black aka Colin Vearncombe died yesterday after suffering serious head injuries in a car crash two weeks ago was still a shocker. Wonderful Life was an relatively early album purchase for me and the title track that spoke to me as a 17 year old still resonates today as I nudge 46. Of course there was so much more to the man than just that one song and it's well worth setting aside an hour or two to cop a listen to over 31 years worth of music making. He may have had his ups and downs but, musically at least, it really was a wonderful life. RIP.
