Sad news from the music world, Steve Bronski from Bronski Beat died recently. I grew up listening to their music and still often do when I play my 80’s Apple Music playlist. Thank you for the wonderful tunes, RIP.
Steve Bronski, part of the 1980s British synth-pop trio Bronski Beat, whose members were openly gay at a time when that was uncommon and whose early songs unabashedly addressed homophobia and other gay issues, died after a fire on Dec. 7 at his apartment building in the Soho section of London. He was 61. The Inner West London Coroner’s Court confirmed his death. The London Fire Brigade earlier reported that it had responded to a fire on Berwick Street and taken an unidentified man to a hospital, where he later died.
