Alan Vega, one half of pioneering electronic duo Suicide, died this weekend. Bruce Springsteen, who covered the group's synthpop number "Dream Baby Dream on his album High Hopes, penned a eulogy for the late musician on his website:
Over here on E Street, we are saddened to hear of the passing of Alan Vega, one of the great revolutionary voices in rock and roll. The bravery and passion he showed throughout his career was deeply influential to me. I was lucky enough to get to know Alan slightly and he was always a generous and sweet spirit. The blunt force power of his greatest music both with Suicide and on his solo records can still shock and inspire today. There was simply no one else remotely like him.
Other artists who offered tributes to Vega include Win Butler, MGMT, and former Majical Cloudz's member Devon Welsh. You can check out Bruce's cover of "Dream Baby Dream" below.
