Urban Voodoo Machine's Nick Marsh Dead At 53

(Classic Rock) The Urban Voodoo Machine's Nick Marsh has died after a cancer battle. He was 53. He'd been fighting cancer since being diagnosed in 2014, and was moved to hospice care earlier his week after the disease was found to be inoperable.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Marsh came to prominence in the 1980s with alt-rock band Flesh For Lulu before becoming part of The Urban Voodoo Machine in 2003. He was also a member of From The Deep with his wife Katharine Blake of Miranda Sex Garden and The Medieaval Baebes.

Marsh documented the early months of his health battle on Facebook. He told Classic Rock in February: "I didn't know how else to approach it really. I just thought, 'Here I am.' Facebook is like an open diary if you want it to be. I just felt like I wanted to do that. I don't know why now." Read more here.
