It was a musical double-act we thought would always last, but last night the legendary musical double act of Drum and Bass announced to the world, they were splitting up. Music fans and colleagues throughout the world were stunned.
"It's shocking! Absolutely shocking!" said Rock of perennial double-act Rock'n'Roll, outside his luxury home in Tennessee.
The split brings to mind other memorable famous splits, such as that of Country and Western, Jazz and Swing, & House and Garage.
Even the legendary Rhythm and Blues split up before reforming as the lacklustre, R'n'B.
Rock is 63.
