We have just heard some devastating news, that one of our beloved idols and respected singers has sadly taken his own life.
Reports are filtering through that James Freud, aged 51, from The Models, has passed away in his Melbourne home this morning.
Recently inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, Freud did not attend the ceremony. Sean Kelly was reported to have said James "had fallen off the bike" referring to the demons that have plagued the singer for years and were documented in his two autobiographies.
Our hearts and our condolences go out to his family and friends.
May his soul now rest in eternal peace.
