Possibly just about worth mentioning the passing of Bruce Forsyth, a popular entertainer over here who did have a few pop records and released a few albums over the years, though it was one of the few sides of the business he did not pursue too heavily. Here is his opening at Glastonbury 2013:

He was 85 then

He did a few minor films, but never matched his dreams of comparing to Astaire or Kelly. He did shows on Broadway, but mostly he worked in television as an entertainer and game-show host. His final presenting triumph had been Strictly Come Dancing (the UK version of Dancing With The Stars). He had been ill awhile, and died at the age of 89. RIP Sad

Melissa Bell, mother of Alexandra Burke and sometime singer with Soul II Soul, passed away the other day at the early age of 53 Sad
Bell was best known for her stint in the Grammy award-winning band, which she joined in 1993. Among her recordings with the band were the singles ‘Wish’ (1993) and 1995’s ‘Be A Man’, but Bell left Soul II Soul in 1995 to pursue a solo career. Bell later had a spell as the lead singer of the band Soul Explosion.
Bell had struggled with health problems for a number of years, and suffered from kidney failure in 2008 while Burke was competing in The X Factor.
Also, Walter Becker, co-founder of Steely Dan, has died at the age of 67.

RIP to both Sad

Grime pioneer Major Ace has died from a brain tumour. He was a member of a group called Pay As You Go, who hit the UK top 20 back in 2002 with "Champagne Dance". Unsure of his age, though.

Gord Downie, popular frontman with Canadian rockers The Tragically Hip, has died at the age of 53
The gifted lyricist - who was dubbed the country's unofficial poet laureate - had been diagnosed with an incurable glioblastoma in May 2016.

Despite his diagnosis, Downie continued to tour with Tragically Hip and produce music in the last years of his life. He recorded a solo double-album called Introduce Yerself in January 2017, which will be released on 27 October.
Something to look forward to there. RIP Sad
