Level 42's co-founding guitarist Rowland “Boon” Gould was found dead in his home in Dorset, England at the age 64, according to BBC.co.uk. Boon, who formed the band on the Isle Of Wight in 1979 with younger brother, drummer Phil Gould, and bassist Mark King, co-wrote the band's two major U.S. hits — “Something About You,” which hit Number Seven in 1986 and the following year's “Lessons In Love,” which peaked at Number 12. Boon quit Level 42 in late 1987, but went on to contribute lyrics and guitar to the band's 2006 album Retroglide.
Mark King posted a tribute to Gould on his Twitter page, which read: It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to tell you of the passing of our dear friend and brother Boon Gould. You are at peace now Boon, no more pain mate. Thank you for everything. Mark x”
