Nick Kamen (died May 4th, aged 59)
Model and singer-songwriter Nick Kamen died on May 4th after a long battle with bone marrow cancer. Bearing a resemblance to a young Elvis Presley, Kamen became a household name after starring in an advert for Levi’s 501 stonewashed denim back in the ‘80s.
The Levi’s ad led Kamen to the world of music. In 1986, the British celebrity released his first ever single titled Each Time You Break My Heart, which was written by Madonna herself and was originally intended as one of the tracks of her third album True Blue. Kamen also recorded the 1990 song I Promised Myself, which achieved success in Austria and Sweden where it topped the charts.
