His injuries sound terrible. Say a wee prayer for the lovely man.

LONDON, England (CNN) -- British pop singer Marc Almond, best known for the song "Tainted Love" -- a global hit for his band Soft Cell in 1981 -- has been critically injured in a motorbike crash, police say.

Almond, 48, was riding as pillion passenger on the bike when it was involved in an accident with a car on Sunday afternoon in central London's financial district.

Almond suffered severe head injuries and motorbike driver was also badly hurt, police said.

That sucks.

The link says he is stable.

Man, this has been a bad month for the relatively few famous people that I care about.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Ooh, he's been upgraded. That is great news.

Two of my all-time favorite videos are his "I Feel Love" with Bronski Beat, which is Benny Hill meets Tom of Finland and the most fabulously gay video ever, and Coil's cover of "Tainted Love" in which he makes a very sexxxy appearance as hmm, Death.

I tried to find "I Feel Love" online but sadly no dice. I did find the second one (brainwashed.com) which TOTALLY messed me up as a teen watching my beloved "Night Flight." It's not terribly appropriate considering Almond's current situation but it's an amazing clip (directed by Peter Christopherson) that is worth checking out/revisiting if you're a music video aficionado.
