An iconic singer, and songwriter, has sadly passed away in his sleep. Tommy Keene unexpectedly died this past week. At this time, no direct cause of death has been revealed.
"Tommy Keene, a veteran singer-songwriter of the new wave and power-pop eras best known for his 1984 alternative-radio hit 'Places That Are Gone,' died Wednesday," according to a post on his website.
Keene was well known in the music industry. He released dozens of albums over the course of his career. He first appeared on the music scene in the 1970s but made a major breakthrough in 1984.
" In 1984, he released his EP on the indie Dolphin Records, 'Places That Are Gone.' A deal with the major label Geffen Records ensued and he released two albums on the label, 'Songs From the Film' in 1986 and 'Based on Happy Times' three years later. He signed with indie powerhouse Matador in the mid-1990s and released two albums there as well," according to reports.
