We are very sorry to hear of the death of Mick Lynch – the charismatic former frontman of quirky indie band beloved of John Peel, Stump. The band rose to underground prominence with 'Quirk Out' which highlighted Mick’s onstage charisma and natural charm. A simply lovely man from Cork.

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, founding member and singer in the British heavy metal band Motörhead, has died at the age of 70 shortly after learning he had been diagnosed with cancer. The band announced on their Facebook page that Lemmy learned of the disease on Boxing Day, and was at home when he died and said “There is no easy way to say this … our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learned of the disease on 26 December, and was at home, sitting in front of his favourite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family." They asked fans to have a drink or two and play Lemmy's music LOUD in his honour.
