Few bands of the last 40 years have been as influential to indie rock, punk and alternative as The Fall, so it is not surprise to see the outpouring of tributes following the very sad death of main man Mark E. Smith. We've collected some of the most notable ones, not just from fellow musicians but also actors, filmmakers, comedians and more, including (ex wife and bandmate) Brix (who released a longer tribute since), '80s/'90s era drummer Simon Wolstencroft, plus Billy Bragg, Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook, Kim Gordon, Buzzcocks, Superchunk, Pavement's Spiral Stairs, Matador Records, director Edgar Wright, Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, Garbage, Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, actor Paddy Considine, Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan, Cloud Nothings, and many more. Read those below.
