After The Fall's lead singer Mark E Smith died aged 60, fans have been sharing some of their favourite tracks from the band's four-decade history.

Although no cause of death has been released, Variety reported that Smith had been plagued by health issues "connected to his throat mouth/dental and respiratory system", the band's manager, Pam Vander said. Smith was famously hard: He's the only constant in The Fall's long string of lineups, and he was arrested in 1998 for assaulting his then-girlfriend, keyboard player Julie Nagle.

'He passed this morning at home. "In the meantime, Pam and Mark's family request privacy at this sad time".

The gang went through 66 different members over the years, with 1/3 of them lasting less than a year.

The Advisory Board on Rakhine State was set up to implement recommendations regarding Rohingya crisis, made by an advisory commission in 2017 led by former U.N.

Smith, who had fronted the Fall for four decades, performed in a wheelchair in the United Kingdom past year and was forced to cancel a US tour due to his health.

"Babydriver" director Edgar Wright tweeted that Smith was "not merely a legend of indie music but someone who, for me, was a gateway into that very genre".

In August, the band cancelled shows in NY and Louisville, Kentucky, after Smith was hospitalised for issues relating to his throat, mouth and respiratory system. In late December further USA dates were cancelled, with Vander citing "a full year of bad health" as the reason.
