At Least It Wasn't In a Town Without Pity

Gene your voice will be missed. For the rest of you be careful what's on your Ipod when you travel. Don't listen to London Calling while you are in a taxi. - Gene Pitney found dead in hotel - Apr 5, 2006: "Pitney, 65, was found dead just after 10 a.m. Wednesday (0500 ET) at the Hilton Hotel in Cardiff, Wales.

His agent, Jene Levy, told Reuters Pitney died on Wednesday morning after given a concert in the Welsh capital the previous day.

There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Friends said he was in apparent good health and his death came as a shock.

'We don't have a cause of death at the moment but looks like it was a very peaceful passing,' said Pitney's tour manager, James Kelly, according to The Associated Press.

'He was found fully clothed, on his back, as if he had gone for a lie down. It looks as if there was no pain whatsoever.'"

The RIP's are going to be brutal this year.
