Genesis P-Orridge has passed away. I’ve known this was coming for a while but still hurts. Gen was about as complex as a person can be, and there’s so much (good and bad) to learn from such an insane life. I wouldn’t be here doing what I do without them.https://t.co/mxYLY5fRNc

Not quite sure what to say here. If you have any interest in the strange, the deep, the dark in music, you just lost a hero today. Genesis P-Orridge was one of the most truly innovative and larger-than-life stories and souls in art itself. This is a tragic loss. Rest easy. <3 pic.twitter.com/Y3UpzPOn4A
