  1. So sad, must be twenty years since we had a kick about n a beer. I’m proud to have known you mate. Happy Staningfield Red House days.

  2. Absolutely gutted to hear this.

    I loved his vocals and his song-writing was just amazing.

    Their songs are more iconic now than ever…

  3. Hard to believe and to accept.
    He was so deep and structured. I loved his songs and voice.
    May his soul be bright forever.

  4. As the title of Talk Talk’s first album mentions….The Party’s Over….loved the track It’s So Serious, which was also the b side to Today their second single back in 1982. R.I.P.

  5. Talk Talk still sound unique to this day.
    This is yet another tragedy for music.
    I just hope his passing will spark interest within a new generation of listener and influence the next wave of talent.
    God bless you Mark.
    R.I.P x

  6. Ciao Mark!
    l’Italia ti ha amato, l’Italia ti ricorderà.
    (Italy has loved you, Italy will never forget you)

    Riposa in pace

  7. I deeply upset at the death of Mark Hollis. Are there pics of his family. Hopefully in a good way his fans will be told the cause of death which I personally think it may have been cancer. However he has definitely made an impression on me. Rip
