    Why are there two Roll of Honor threads? Taggart started the original thread in the Musicians and Community section.

    Taggart's thread (my bolding):

    One of the problems of posting such links is that sometimes they will be hidden behind paywalls. We subscribe to The Telegraph print edition and get a pass to their main site so don't always notice the problem.
    That's why I started the current thread for obituaries from the field of non-classical music

    Sarah Dash, one of the three singers along with Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle who comprised the funk/disco group Labelle (although they had a long prehistory singing together), has died aged 76. Strange - I was thinking about this strikingly visual band only the other day.

    Lanc will be especially missed by 'old-school' Quo fans - it was him who particularly resented the group's move into more lightweight territory from the late 70s onwards.
