Default Levi's launderette 1985 model Nick Kamen dead at 59



[Levi's launderette model Nick Kamen
has passed away aged 59.
News of his death came after social media
tributes arose on Wednesday,
including an Instagram post by his
friend Boy George,
who shared a touching note,
while Susie Cave took to the site to
share a snap of her 'dear friend'.]



He was good when he was younger


[The Essex-born model, born Ivor Neville Kamen,
was best known for his 1986 hit
Each Time You Break My Heart and the
iconic 1985 Levi's 501 commercial
His friend Boy George confirmed the news
on Instagram on Wednesday,
writing: 'R.I.P to the most beautiful and
sweetest man Nick Kamen!'
After appearing in the Levi's advert
aged 18, Madonna spotted Nick
and reached out to collaborate on his hit single,
which she wrote and cameo-ed on
In a BBC radio interview in 1986,
the songstress said she was i
nspired by Kamen's 'charisma'
and 'beautiful voice', which led to the collaboration
His music career spanned four LPs between 1987 and 1992]

They are saying he passed away
in his sleep.




It was a great groundbreaking 1985 Ad
in the days when you could go down to just your shorts
in a relaxed Launderette
Now days not so sure

[Model and singer Nick Kamen has died at the age of 59,
a friend of his family has confirmed to the BBC.

His music career peaked the following year
with a top five hit Each Time You Break My Heart,
which was written by Madonna.
His friend and fellow singer Boy George lead the

describing Kamen as "the most beautiful and sweetest man".]

Even the BBC can not find out.


At that age he should have been "possibly" on standard meds
that protect his heart, and or blood pressure.
Depending on his actual weight, etc.


They are daily tablets that could protect him
he may not, have had them etc.

I'm pretty upset by this. Adored him. Shocked.

They should re-release his music
