I just found out that Poly Styrene, lead singer of the amazing but short lived band X-Ray Spex has passed away. Now, I've only been listening to the band for a little over a year, but they've fast become one of my favorites since I was introduced to them. Poly Styrene's vocals and lyrics were without a doubt amazing albeit unpolished, and she was just a super rad rock star. I bet she was a cool person. I'm saddened by this news, especially since I also just found out she was working on a solo record. Super sad. I weep for music a little more every day.
R.I.P. Poly Styrene (1957-2011)
