Pete Burns RIP
Good grief, this one's come as bit of a shock. Okay so Pete Burns might not had the same impact on popular music as Bowie or Prince but you can't deny that he was one hell of a character (and how much does the world need proper characters in this day and age eh?) who came out with one of the definitive hits of the 80s before transforming himself (literally) into a gloriously trashy star of celeb TV. Aged just 57 apparently he suffered a massive heart attack a mere five days before the release of an equally massive 19 disc retrospective called Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI. RIP.
