Kenny MacLean of the 1980s band Platinum Blonde has died in Toronto.

The 52-year-old bassist was found in his apartment-recording studio. Police said the veteran musician was discovered collapsed and unresponsive Monday in his apartment.

MacLean had just released his third solo album, Completely, last Friday at a club in the city.

"This is devastating," Mark Holmes, former lead singer of Platinum Blonde, told the Toronto Star.

Holmes performed with his old friend Friday night at the Mod Club.
