RIP: Mark Hollis of Talk Talk

Mark Hollis of Talk Talk has died, according to a confirmation from manager Keith Aspden to Pitchfork. He was 64. From ex-Talk Talk bassist Paul Webb’s official Facebook page:

I am very shocked and saddened to hear the news of the passing of Mark Hollis. Musically he was a genius and it was a honour and a privilege to have been in a band with him. I have not seen Mark for many years, but like many musicians of our generation I have been profoundly influenced by his trailblazing musical ideas. He knew how to create a depth of feeling with sound and space like no other. He was one of the greats, if not the greatest.
