It's sad to see people going like this, celebrities or not.

I always heard the name Crowded house now and then, and knew Don't dream it's over and Weather but I got into them more about 2 or 3 years ago. Beautiful music, and a lovely voice.

Heard about it last night, still can't believe it. Freakin' bizarre.

So sad. So very, very sad. My condolances to his family and friends. R.I.P., Paul .

I cannot find anything on the (web) news wires. Okay it is Sunday and the Easter weekend.

Like Michael Hutchence, you believe these people have it all.

So very very sad.
Sorry Down Under, I had another link last night to the Frenz forum ,where Neil Finns management, had commented but forgot to post it.

Some of his comments have turned up in the article Yimou posted a link to

Thanks Beli

Now Monday morning (wiping the sleep out of my eyes) and the sad news is all over the news.

Appears he ended it in a park on Friday while walking his dog.

So sad, leaving a wife and two daughters.

RIP

RIP Paul.

The first album I ever fell in love with was Recurring Dream - The Very Best Of Crowded House at the age of 10. It came with a live bonus disk of many of the best live moments of CH.... some hillarious, hillirous moments from Paul. I've worn that CD completely down in the past 9 years and no longer plays, but somewhere in those 9 years Paul (as well as Nick, Neil & Tim) has entered my heart.

When I got that email yesterday, i just didnt know what to say or do. I still don't, it breaks my heart too much.

I was only ever able to see Paul play once, and one song at that. It was last november when he played the sessions with Neil & Tim. I said to my sister who came with me "This will be hillarious". And it was, with some hillarious banter and innuendo from Paulo - before the intro we were already crying, but now those tears come from another place.

Everything I hear in Crowded House now reminds me of him, and of this. I just have stuck in my head songs like Italian Plastic, Skin Feeling & World Where You Live.

I have however found some minor comfort in the last track on Woodface (How Will You Go/I'm Still Here), thats how I think Paul is probably looking down.

My favourite drummer, from my favourite band is dead... Paulo I loved you. You will be missed more than you ever know.

I feel like I should listen to some Crowded House right now, but I'm afraid it would make me even sadder.

Oh my Lord, I hadn't heard anything about this. I can't believe it - i'm actually in a small state of shock.
This is such a tragic loss.

I hope, so greatly, that he is at peace.
