U2, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones Stage Designer Mark Fisher Dies

Set designer Mark Fisher, whose lengthy resume included working with a who's-who of legendary rock acts, such as U2 the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Pink Floyd has died at the age of 66.

NME reports that Fisher, who'd been battling an undisclosed illness for a lengthy period, died "peacefully in his sleep" while resting in hospice care. He is survived by his wife, who was at his side when he passed away.

"We are all extremely saddened to hear of the death of our dear friend Mark Fisher," wrote the Stones in a press release.

"The remarkable sets he designed for us over the last two decades played a major part in the success of all those tours. His passion, dedication and professionalism was infectious. We all loved his dry sense of humor and unflappable demeanor. A quietly soft spoken genius Mark will be sorely missed - not only by us but by every single member of ours and any crew he worked with. Our sincere condolences go to his wife and family."
