  • Feeder drummer Jon Lee commits suicide

    This is taken from

    Feeder drummer dies
    Jon Lee, drummer with Brit rockers Feeder has been found dead in his home in Miami. Jon, 33, (pictured far left), is survived by his wife Tatiana and a son, Cameron. Lee's body was discovered on Monday but the news has only just been announced.

    Bandmates Grant Nicholls (vocals) and Taka Hirose (guitar), have released a statement which read: 'We will miss him more than melody. We're utterly devastated.'

    A spokesman for Feeder's record company said: 'Our sincere and heartfelt sympathy extends to Jon's family, fellow band members and all his friends. At this dreadfully difficult time we would ask that Jon's family and friends are afforded the utmost privacy.'

    Lee, originally from Newport, South Wales, was a founding member of the band who had four UK Top 20 singles including Buck Rogers and Just A Day. Lead singer Grant Nicholls says Jon's family have asked the band not to split up.

    Lee married his wife Tatiana, a Brazilian model in Florida in 2000 and had settled in Miami after the wedding.

    The band had recently finished a European tour supporting the Stereophonics. They were also due to record a performance on Top Of The Pops tomorrow.

    I think that the band should continue - although understandably, they are devastated = and quite why he committed suicide will be hard to come to terms with for all concerned. Feeder do need to pick up the pieces eventually and continue - however hard that will initially be - not least because that is the wishes of Jon's close family. At a time like this - I could go on about my favourite drumming parts in Feeder songs - all I will say on the matter is listen to the the fills on "Seven Days In The Sun" to appreciate how good a drummer Jon was.
