Polly Styrene RIP



I must admit that I haven't been following  the news much of late but I am sorry I missed the news that Polly Styrene (born Marianne Elliot-Said), formerly of X Ray Spex had died last week.

She was being treated for  breast cancer which sadly had spread to her lungs and spine. She was 53 years old.

I saw about this on another blog. Her passing didn't exactly make headline news.

It didn't but still a shame though

My contemporaries are dying more frequently; I'm beginning to be unsurprised.
