Poly Styrene of X Ray Spex - RIP

Poly Styrene, lead singer of the punk/new wave band X Ray Spex passed away at age 53 after a long struggle against breath and spine cancer. Saw them back in the day in Los Angeles. Great band. Scary when performers from the punk era, younger than me, are now now longer with us for reasons other than overdoses or other excesses.
