Julee Cruise Dead at 65
Lynchian songstress Julee Cruise, the ethereal voice haunting the roadhouse in the television show Twin Peaks, passed away on June 9, 2022. She was 65.
Cruise’s death was announced by her husband, editor and author Edward Grinnan, who references her touring as a member of The B-52’s during the 90s, in one of the band’s fan groups on Facebook:
For those of you who go back, I thought you might want to know that I said goodbye to my wife, Julee Cruise, today. She left this realm on her own terms. No regrets. She is at peace. Having had such a varied music career she often said that the time she spent as a B filling in for Cindy while she was having a family was the happiest time of her performing life. She will be forever grateful to them. When she first stepped up to the mic with Fred and Kate she said it was like joining the Beatles. She will love them always and never forget their travels together around the world. I played her Roam during her transition. Now she will roam forever. Rest In Peace, my love, and love to you all.
