RIP : Peter Burns (Dead or Alive) 1959 - 2016

Man, the first 80's band that I got into and am still a fan of. I didn't really care that Pete fucked up his face with all of that bad plastic surgery but Youthquake is one of my favorite albums of the 1980's.

I guess Pete died of a heart attack yesterday.

EDIT - can a mod change the DOB in the title - it should say 1959. He died at age 57.

RIP. I was a huge fan and DOA was my high school soundtrack from 85-87. I actually saw them in 1987 when they were doing a handful of live dates to promote "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know". I think it was at The Palace which is now The Avalon.

Kind of ironic that they were getting ready to release their entire catalog on vinyl this December.




I pre-ordered the set on Amazon UK.

Can a mod correct the title to Peter Burns (Dead) 1959-2016 ?

Too soon ?

Aw man. If there was one song guaranteed to pull me onto the dance floor back in the day, it was You Spin Me Round.

"[People] always want to know – am I gay, bi, trans or what? I say, forget all that. There's got to be a completely different terminology and I'm not aware if it's been invented yet. I'm just Pete."

Indeed. RIP Pete.

I did like that single, but I never really explored anything beyond that.

I knew so many people who had "Youthquake" in their collection back in the day. And I was telling my friend earlier that the clubs and bars played most of this album. Not just "You Spin Me Round".

I still blast Youthquake on vinyl - It's a great album, IMO.
