I was in the studio last night when I heard the sad news of Dead Or Alive front figure Pete Burns' passing. He died on October 23 from a massive cardiac arrest, only fifty-seven years old. I still can't believe it. I will always love Pete's iconic look, personality and of course the amazing music of Dead Or Alive, best known for their 1985 hit single "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)". But that song was just one of many masterpieces in their music catalog.
Pete died just a few days before the release of the box set "Sophisticated Boom Box MMXVI" so he won't be able to see his fans enjoy this long-awaited gem. The world has lost a fabulous artist who has done so much for the music industry and the LGBT community. But he will surely live on through his wonderful music.
Rest in peace, Pete. You will always be our "special star".
