Chris Squire of Yes, diagnosed with leukemia.

Shit. He's my music idol, from my favorite band. Is no death sentence, but still. Stay well Chris.

He's also the only ever-present member of the band and a major part of their stage presence to this day. He plays bass with more of a show than Steve Howe plays lead.
 
Aye, wouldn't take any pleasure in culling points from him.
read this death list community he us a slam dunk for 2016

 

It depends. There are several types of his type of cancer. I couldn't yet find out which type he has. There is a rare type with a very poor prognosis, but other types would have him likely survive beyond 2016.

 

 

Aye, and he's not short of a few quid if he needs the best treatment.

As a huge Björk fan, I recognize this group from their collaboration on her single "Earth Intruders". They became favorites of the World Music scene and also worked with Herbie Hancock and Seal. 

And now former Björk collaborator DJ State of Bengal is dead:

He died of cardiac arrest at age 50, becoming the second Björk collaborator to die within a month.
