Fade to Grey that he sang in the band Visage, passed away on February the 12th this year.
Strange suffered a heart attack while in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
He died later that day in hospital, which was the same date the film Fifty Shades of Grey hit the cinema screens of my home country, Australia.
The idea for opening the film around this date was to cash in on
Valentine's Day "movie going" crowds around the globe.
Oh, and this photo above reminded me that Fifty Shades of Grey was released just as The Year of the Horse was about to end and
The Year of the Goat was about to start.
Something to bear in mind is that Dakota (Rosemary's Baby / Dakota building?) Johnson, star of Fifty Shades of Grey was in a movie called Goats.
And Dakota is in the forthcoming movie Black Mass.

After the defeat of the Newman (new man?-) government in the 2015 election, Palaszczuk became the first woman in Australia to become Premier of a state from Opposition.
She was sworn in as Queensland's Premier on 14 February 2015 (Valentine's Day).

But wait, there's more.A chocolate king dies on Valentine’s Day:
Billionaire behind Nutella, Kinder Eggs and Ferrero Rocher dead at 89.
Born on April 26 1925, Michele Ferrero inherited the company in 1949 on the death of his father.
Under his aegis, it expanded relentlessly in the second half of the 20th century, opening factories in Germany in 1956 and France in 1958;
other European plants followed, before the business gained a presence in America, Canada, Australia and Asia.
Kinder chocolates were introduced in 1968;
Tacs a year later; and Ferrero Rocher in 1982.
Kinder Surprise (or Kinder Eggs), hollow chocolate eggs containing small toy figurines, were introduced in Europe in 1989 and were an immediate success.

But wait, there are still some Strange coincidences to come.
Benedict Cumberbatch confirms Valentine's Day marriage
Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed his marriage to Sophie Hunter.The actor's spokeswoman told Newsbeat the couple got married on Valentine's Day, and added that "it was a magical day".
The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony with family and close friends on the Isle of Wight.
Cumberbatch (of chocolate?-) is going to play Dr.Stephen Strange in his next movie.
Deadline revealed back in late October that Marvel had set its sights on the British actor who has become an awards season front runner for his The Imitation Game performance as Alan Turing, the genius who cracked the Nazi’s unbreakable Enigma Code, shortening WWII by two years.
He was tragically prosecuted for being homosexual and chemically castrated, in one of the great injustices of the 20th Century.

18th February, 2015 (Ash Wednesday)
It's Ash Wednesday over here in Oz and I was just thinking how strange that Ash Wednesday should coincide with the last day of the Year of the Horse and usher in the Year of the Goat.
"At least 16 people have been killed and 78 injured after a carnival float hit power lines in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince on the second day of an annual festival, officials say.
The float caught fire after it hit a high-voltage overhead power cable, witnesses said.
Video of the incident appeared to show the electric cable catch the head of a singer from popular Haitian hip-hop band Barikad Crew.
The rap group's star singer, who goes by the name Fantom, was struck directly by the fallen cable and is in a critical condition, the website Haiti Press Network said.
Seven people were reported dead on the float, and others were killed in the ensuing panic.
The government said the accident happened near the city centre on the Champ de Mars at around 2:48am (local time), on the second day of the carnival as tens of thousands of people watched."
