John Balance (of Coil) Dead

Recommended Posts

I know I said this in another thread, but I figured it deserved it's own thread.

The founder and vocalist of Coil and former member of Psychic TV, John Balance (real name Geff Rushton) died on Saturday. All I have to say is that he was a brilliant musician and Coil is one of my favorite bands of all time. Here are a bunch of sites paying tribute to him:

I know not many of you know who he is, but there are a few fans of Coil around here so I thought I'd share this.

tragic. i am not much of a coil fan but john balance was regardless a monumentally important figure in experimental musics. a lot of you have bad taste or no taste in music and could do well becoming familiar with the works of people like him.

Sometimes. I've seen it spelled both ways.

Why are so many people dying recently?

Only the good die young.

Fredrik, isn't that question basically incoherent with the viewpoint you've been taking of disregarding famous peoples' deaths?
