Demise..Loga of Alleycats...


One of Malaysian great singer Loganathan Arumugam of the famous Allycats was called to the Lord this morning. I believe he would be remembered well by all Malaysian. Condolence to his family for the lost, not only to them but to those music lovers in Malaysia and the world. Alleycats with their trade mark ' Terima Kasiiiiiiih ' has been part of the Malaysian culture, especially so in the Malaysian music scene. His songs like Andainya Aku pergi dulu, Mawar Merah, Kerana Mu are parts of great music and songs that the group has produce throughout the years. These are now parts of the Malaysian famous songs and I believe it would soon be a collectors items which are priceless. Hearing those songs often brings great memories of the great time we all have had at parties and with families members when watching Him performed. Indeed a lost to country especially so in the Music Industry of which He is an icon.. So Sampaikanlah Salam to all his family with the message that we all love him and that he shall be remembered as one of Malaysia greatest son. More on this news on a friend's blog.

Salam Pak Idrus
I don't even know where to start to write an obituary on Loga for my blog!
Everyone I know could relate to Alleycats' kind of music. As far as I can remember, they're the only non-Malay pop band singing Malay songs.
When they cut their first album, I had just left school. That was 28 years ago. Now, my 10 year old niece loves Alleycats.
My deepest condolences to his family.
He may be gone but his music lives on.

Dear Loga, an untimely death of yours, came in as a bombshell to the Malaysian Musical Industry. We were expecting more of your contribution to the entertainment world but you chose to succumb to the fact of life after fighting against… Good Bye Friend…A photograph that I took with you at the entrance of Bongo Pub in 2003 will always be a precious antic in my cabinet. You will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by your fans. Its my turn to tell you “kini aku hanya dapat berdoa, agar berbahagia kau di sampingNya…Selamat Tinggal…Terima Kaseeehhhh”
