    Default Frankie Knuckles has passed away

    No April's Fool's here. Several confirmations have come through to confirm that the "Godfather of House Music" has indeed passed away at the age of 59.

    Fuck, I'm speechless, I don't know what else to say.

    RIP homie, you're up in house heaven dancing the night away with all of us in spirit
