Born in Los Angeles in California in 1958, David Roback lived and worked primarily in California and Europe.

David Roback, the co-founder of beloved alt-rock band Mazzy Star, has died at the age of 61.

He later left the band in 1983 after the release of their first album Emergency Third Rail Power Trip, the LA Times reported.

Prior to that, he was heavily involved in LA's Paisley Underground scene, playing with the bands Rain Parade and Opal, from which Mazzy Star emerged.

Sandoval's voice was not pristine, but distant and whispering, foggy and full - and, it turned out, could bond like a magnet to Roback's songwriting.

While the second song on She Hangs Brightly - a distorted, layered cover of the obscure German band Slapp Happy's song "Blue Flower" - made it onto the charts, it was "Fade Into You", from 1993's So Tonight That I May See, that brought the duo into mainstream focus. Roback and Sandoval were both relatively media-shy and did not really capitalize on the moment, releasing the follow-up album, "Among My Swan", some three years later before effectively disbanding.

Died: Monday, February 24, 2020. No cause of death has been announced. Here are some ways.

Another review of the album describes "Mary of Silence" as "an organ-led slow shuffle that easily ranks with the best of the Doors, strung-out and captivating all at once, Sandoval's singing and Roback's careful acid soloing flawless foils".

Leading the tributes online, Hoffs said he would be "eternally missed".

"Wow, David Roback. His music has been a constant in my listening life. Peace love to his friends & family".
