Colin Vearncombe (Black)

Seems like 2016 is a disastrous year. After David Bowie and Alan Rickman passing away, it was Black, 53, that died.

Colin Vearncombe, his real name, was hospitalized for more than 2 weeks in an Irish hospital, after a car crash near the Cork airport. He was in a coma, while during last week, it was announced that he had only a few chances of making it.

His death was announced on his Facebook page.

Black became globally known in 1985, thanks to his track “Wonderful Life”.
