Mark Hollis Talk Talk Frontman Dies Aged 64


Mark Hollis, frontman with 1980s rock band Talk Talk, has passed away at the age of 64. His former manager with the band Keith Aspden confirmed the news with the BBC Today.

His manager said, “Mark has died after a short illness from which he never recovered.” Talk Talk gained chart success in the ’80s with hits including, “Life’s What You Make it,”  “It’s My Life,” “Today,” as well as “Such a Shame.”

The band split in 1991 and Hollis went on to release a solo record in 1998 but then left music completely and took himself out of the public eye focusing on his family instead.
