The day the music died

From ABC News Online:

The Australian music community is mourning the death of Magic Dirt bassist Dean Turner, who has died from cancer aged 37.


Turner is survived by a wife and two young daughters.

I normally laugh at people who get upset at celebrities they never knew in person dying, but this one really got me. The intertubes have told me he died of a rare form of lung cancer deep tissue cancer, at the very young age of 37. I guess when it’s your time, it’s your time.

It’s a sad day for Aussie music.

UPDATE: According to the updated Wikipedia entry, it was a form of deep tissue cancer. Geez. How could you have prevented that?
