    Lead singer of the Divinyls. She was very sick but at only 53, I can barely believe I am posting this:

    Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett dies - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    WAAAAAAH.

    Wow. She was so young but that's the way that bastard cancer is - "Touch Myself" was the song every guy wanted his girl to dedicate to him.

    RIP Chrissy

    Very sad another Aussie legend gone. She is now rocking it up there with Bon. Love her voice very unique.

    As a fellow aussie and music fan in general this is sad news. So young but added so much.

    How unfortunate. I'm always saddened to read about creative and positive people who are stuck down by cruel illness while others stumble into remission with barely a grateful nod. Personally I have two family members who survived devastating diseases and are as petty and small minded as they were before the illness. Life is a crapshoot..

    Oh man, what a sad day for rock music. One of the most beautiful women and creative talents... gone.

    This has occupied my thoughts all day. It made it easy to decide what music to listen to while mowing the lawn. Not a single bad song in all of the Divinyls catalog.

    My feelings exactly. It's not often a celebrity's death really affects me much but this is one of the exceptions. Sigh. Life, you are a bitch.
