"Crying Over You" by Platinum Blonde

On this day in 2008 bassist and keyboardist Kenny MacLean was found dead of an unspecified heart ailment... He was 52.

Scottish-born MacLean wasn't a founding member of Canadian glam-rock outfit Platinum Blonde, but he did come on board just as the group found its greatest fame with the monster hit album Alien Shores - which says more than I ever could in the space allotted about the importance in life of seizing an opportunity and running with it.

Crying Over You was arguably the band's biggest hit, placing MacLean and his new bandmates front and centre in Canada's thriving music scene at the height of the 1980s.
