His manager's statement has been issued on behalf of his family, @Elementary Penguin.

NY Daily News is now reporting the statement, Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, CNN...

It is the confirmation statement, unfortunately.  

Sorry @Ron Nasty I didn't see your post before I posted mine but I saw the confirmation announcement. I feared this would happen. It's a sad day for music but I'm sure Tom, George and Roy are having an amazing jam right now.

Gord Downie dead at 53

Gord Downie, the singer for the Tragically Hip and one of Canada's most beloved rock musicians, died Tuesday night, according to an official statement from the band. he was 53.  Downie had been previously diagnosed with glioblastoma, an incurable brain cancer. The disease was discovered after a 2015 seizure.  The band, one of the most popular and defining Canadian groups of the last 30 years, embarked on a goodbye tour after the diagnosis, playing its final sold-out show in its hometown of Kingston, Ontario, last summer.

"Gord knew this day was coming — his response was to spend this precious time as he always had — making music, making memories and expressing deep gratitude to his family and friends for a life well lived, often sealing it with a kiss … on the lips," the band said in its official statement.

"Gord said he had lived many lives," it continued. "As a musician, he lived 'the life' for over 30 years, lucky to do most of it with his high school buddies. At home, he worked just as tirelessly at being a good father, son, brother, husband and friend. No one worked harder on every part of their life than Gord. No one."

Formed in the mid-1980s by then-university students Downie and guitarist Rob Baker, the band took their name from a comedy sketch in former Monkee Michael Nesmith's oddball experimental film "Elephant Parts." After signing to MCA Records a few years later, the Tragically Hip released its eponymous first EP in 1987.  The band quickly rose within the ranks of Canadian rock bands. Its first album, "Up to Here," sold over 100,000 copies in Canada, and its follow-up, "Road Apples," surpassed 300,000 copies.  In those years, the Tragically Hip relentlessly toured Canada and made jaunts to Europe, but never seemed too concerned with breaking into the U.S. scene.  Unlike chart-busting Juno Award winners of the time including Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Rush and Alanis Morrisette, while the Tragically Hip was earning Junos — its first was as most promising band in 1990 — Downie and company waited until they were established up north before dipping down to test the waters.  The band's multiplatinum 1996 album, "Trouble at the Henhouse," earned them their first album of the year Juno. As with most of his lyrics, Downie on "Henhouse" found beauty in the tiny wonders of life while exploring big questions of existence.  "Gift Shop" views the world from above, a macroscopic ode to what he describes as "the beautiful lull, the dangerous tug" of life. Singing as if soaring in the clouds, he adds, "We get to feel small/From high up above/And after a glimpse/Over the top/The rest of the world/Becomes a gift shop."  The group was a favorite across Canada for its mix of hard-swinging rock and Downie's allusive lyrics that remained focused on Canadian identity and issues even as the band saw international success. In his last months, he remained an outspoken advocate for indigenous rights, addressing injustices in songs like "Now the Struggle Has a Name."

This has been known to be coming for a while, but still sad. Rest in peace.

Rest in Peace George Young. He was a member of The Easybeats and produced some of AC/DC's records which makes sense as he was the older brother of Angus and Malcolm.

I only found out this afternoon. Maybe not the most famous of the Young brothers but he was still very important to the history of Rock n Roll.

George Young and Harry Vanda were immensely successful songwriters, and not just in the Easybeats.  And Young was a influential producer here in Australia. Very much the end of an era.

Sad, sad news, my friends, another of the cornerstones has fallen.

Antoine "Fats" Domino, Jr. has left us at the age of 89.

Fats-at-Piano.jpgImage Enlarger

One of the true founding fathers of the music we know and love, he has been almost the forgotten man, the comedy figure of those early characters. He was the real deal though. Had a dozen gold records before Elvis had released a single.

We have lost a giant in every sense of the word.

This song seems appropriate...

Fats made me cry, when he said Goodbye...

RIP to the Fat Man, Wa-Wa-Wa-Wa...

Very surprised, as I was only on a kick of Blue Monday a few weeks ago. Another great song of his was Ain't That A Shame, covered separately by both John (in 1974) and Paul (in 1988).  R.I.P. Fats Domino apple01heart

Mom and I shed tears after hearing of Fats Domino's dying. When I was a kid, we would play her original 'Blueberry Hill' 45 on the Hi-Fi and sing our hearts out. 

Good times, good memories, Fats. Just wanted you to know. Thanks.

Paul's glowing tribute to Fats:

Rest in peace Fats Domino, the great Rock 'N' Roll pianist and singer who thrilled us in our early days in Liverpool. His hit records like Ain't That a Shame, Blueberry Hill, I'm in Love Again and many others introduced us to the sounds of New Orleans Rock 'N' Roll. We were excited to meet Fats once in his home town of New Orleans. He was wearing a huge star spangled diamond encrusted watch which was our first encounter with bling! His voice, piano playing and musical style was a huge influence on us and his appearance in the film The Girl Can't Help It was truly magnificent. As one of my favourite Rock 'N' Roll singers, I will remember him fondly and always think of him with that twinkle in his eye. I read that he had eight children. He himself was named Antoine. His kids were named Antoine III, Anatole, Andre, Antonio, Antoinette, Andrea, Anola and Adonica. Now that is pure Fats!

I'm reminded of how Fats remembered that New Orleans meeting on 16 September 1964...

16-September-1964.jpegImage Enlarger

They'd been expecting to meet him the day before, a day off on the tour, but had been grounded in Key West by a hurricane. They had one of their support acts, the great Clarence "Frogman" Henry, have people he knew out looking for Fats, who was out shopping. Finally he was found, and whisked off to see them backstage at the City Park Stadium in New Orleans, where they spent around an hour together.

Asked later if he had ever got to meet the Beatles, he invariably used to reply, "No, they got to meet me." Always makes me chuckle.

In Memoriam: Jack Conrad

Jack Conrad, who played bass for The Doors and wrote songs for many artists, has passed away from a massive heart attack. He was 69 years old.

Conrad’s diverse musical career started in the ’60s. He recorded for the Petula Clark album I Know A Place in 1965 and started writing songs. He collaborated with Paul Williams for his albums Someday Man in 1970 and Just an Old Fashioned Love Song the next year. His big bass break came when he was asked to play on the first post-Jim Morrison albums for the Doors: Other Voices and Full Circle. While several other session bassists were featured on those albums, Conrad played on the bulk of each while joining the band on tour. He is featured on the band’s 1972 Beat Club performance, which was their first TV appearance since Jim Morrison’s death.

Other recording highlights from his career include Gram Parsons’ “GP”, Johnny Rivers’ “Last Boogie in Paris”, and Robby Krieger’s “No Habla”.

He was also an accomplished songwriter with credits for artists including Three Dog Night, The Bottom Line, Dave Mason, The Babys, Heart, and more. He released his own solo album, Mother Earth Dance, in 1992.

RIP

Dudley Simpson, the musical heartbeat of classic Dr Who and Blakes 7 and many others, has died aged 95. This guy was the real deal, composing and performing brilliant scores under very tight schedules, often with a surprising subtlety given the limitations of synthesis in the 70's and 80's.

A close friend of our family has been found dead in her flat today. She was only 46, has apparently had a stroke, collapsed and lied on the floor for thread three day until she was found now, dead already.

The circumstances and everything make me so sad, it was so unexpected, too. May she rest in peace.heart

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
