  1. Electric Prunes bassist Mark Tulin dies


    Electric Prunes bassist Mark Tulin has died at the age of 62.

    The musician was a founding member of the influential '60s psychedelic band. In 2009, he worked with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and briefly replaced touring bassist Ginger Pooley at one live show.

    A Facebook post from USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber read: "It is with deep sadness and a very heavy heart that I inform you of the death of Mark Tulin.

    "He collapsed today while helping out at the Avalon Underwater Clean-Up and had immediate response by Baywatch Avalon and Avalon Fire Department medics, but he could not be revived.

    Mark was one-of-a-kind. His energy, generosity, and spirit was unmatched."

    A second post read: "Services for Mark will be held at Mount Sinai Memorial Park - Hollywood Hills on Friday March 4th at 2pm."

    Writing on Twitter, Corgan said: "Just got some horrible news, my brother and good friend, Mark Tulin of the Electric Prunes passed away today. I am really sad!

    "We just had lunch with Mark 2 days ago in Los Angeles + we were discussing recording a new song for the Prunes :( he will be missed by many!

    "I had planned this week to go through all the SP demos of the past 2 years, and of course Mark is playing on almost all of them. Wow... :( "

    Tulin had been touring and recording with the reunited Prunes over the last ten years.

  2. Reading on the AF1 forums there seems to be a lot of unrest and disharmony within the band and most of it directed at Tyler by Perry. There's even talk of replacing him.blink.gif Seems that Tyler is more intent on doing his own thing. I'm not sure Steven would generate much interest as a solo artist. As much as I hate to say it, I think that they are just about done. If they try and replace him I doubt that anyone would bother listening to them anymore. If this is the end then it's a sad way for it to happen.
