Bruce Springsteen has called Alan Vega ‘one of the great revolutionary voices in rock and roll’ after the Suicide man died on Saturday.
Vega, aged 78, passed away peacefully in in his sleep.
Springsteen, famously a keen admirer of both Suicide and Vega, explained how ‘there was simply no one else remotely like him,’ in his words below:
“Over here on E Street, we are saddened to hear of the passing of Alan Vega, one of the great revolutionary voices in rock and roll. The bravery and passion he showed throughout his career was deeply influential to me. I was lucky enough to get to know Alan slightly and he was always a generous and sweet spirit. The blunt force power of his greatest music both with Suicide and on his solo records can still shock and inspire today. There was simply no one else remotely like him.”
