I’m not sure why some deaths hit me harder than others, but the passing of Roxette’s Marie Fredriksson is particularly sad to me. She had an amazingly successful life yes, but a hard and challenging one also. She fought the fight – that is the game life – particularly well, but was forced to leave much too soon. The Guardian has a good obituary.
And I only learned a few days ago that Greedy Smith also passed on earlier this month. Again, much too soon.
