POPOBIT: Nick Hawkins

The death has been announced of Nick Hawkins, guitarist. Hawkins was recruited by Mick Jones for the second incarnation of sample-heavy politico-lite Big Audio Dynamite, the clunkingly named BADII; he was with the band from 1990 to 1997.

Having relocated to the US, Hawkins had worked on music for his wife, the R&B artist Jo Beng, and had been producing his own solo project, Dusk Till Dawn.

Hawkins, who was 40, is believed to have had a heart attack.

The clunkingly named "no rock and roll fun" website has anounced the death of a friend and great rocker Nick Hawkins. Hopefully we all will consider him to be much more important than a trivial POPOBIT. Rest in Peace NIck and fuck those who try to belittle you!
