    Pop Singer Lil' Chris Dead at 24 - He was Gene Simmons' pop protégé

    Lil' Chris, the British pop protégé of Kiss' Gene Simmons, has died. He was just 24. How tragic.

    Chris shot to fame on a UK reality show, Rock School, in which the Kiss bassist tried to create a band comprised of Suffolk students.

    Born Christopher James Hardman, Lil Chris died at his home in Lowestoft, England on Monday, March 23.

    Suffolk Police stated, "Police investigating the sudden death of a man in Lowestoft can confirm they are not treating it as suspicious. Officers received a call from the ambulance service… following a sudden death of a 24-year-old man. A post-mortem examination is due to take place to establish the cause of death and a file will be passed to the coroner in due course and an inquest opened."

    This really is so sad.
