Yes, from what I gather, he may not actually be dead, but I suppose it's only a matter of time.

Jesus christ. These past few years. I mean I know every year we're going to have notable people die, but the past few have been pretty bad for musicians.

Was never a massive fan of his, but I liked everything I heard. Running Down a Dream was looped for days straight when San Andreas came out. RIP.

He has lost cerebral function. Whether he is 'actually dead' or not is semantics. Hes not coming back.

Absolute legend though, RIP. I just never realized how many hits this guy had, and all of them well written ones too.

"These past few years. I mean I know every year we're going to have notable people die, but the past few have been pretty bad for musicians."

How many famous musicians were there 100 years ago? How many 90, or 80 years ago? It's not critical thinking.
