As far as I'm aware, Rebel MC is still alive.  I'll check up on that though.

I have updated the gallery.  Sadly Linda McCartney can't be included as she didn't have any hits (herself or with Wings) in the 80s.

Just added 4 new photos:

Melanie Susan Appleby (of Mel & Kim)
Alan Barton (Black Lace)
The London Boys
Philip Lynott (Thin Lizzy)

If the gallery gets much bigger I will put it on my website instead!!

I didn't know Alan of Black lace was dead.  When and how did he die?  I met Black Lace in Blackpool in 1985 or 86.

Really a late 70s artist but he was still going in the 80s I think you should add Sylvester of You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) fame.

Also Tracey Pugh ("the paunchy cowboy") of The Birthday Party. Nick Cave's first band.

The gallery has been updated with those who had 80s hits (including Sam Cooke and Bing Crosby who died in the 60s and 70s respectively).

Thanks for contributing folks. Smiley
