He was 39 and Molina died of natural causes, though his record label's website noted the detrimental effects alcoholism had had on him in recent years.

American songwriter and producer Deke Richards  has died aged 68. He had been suffering with oesophageal cancer. And Veteran record producer Phil Ramone has passed on, having been hospitalised in late February with an aortic aneurysm, his family have confirmed. He was 79.

Johnny Borrell has said Razorlight will be no more after an April 3rd show in Paris and My Chemical Romance have split after 12 years. My Chemical Romance have also split, saying "Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure."
