On this day in 2002, the rock music world began mourning as the news that ‘Feeder’ drummer, Jon Lee had committed suicide.

The Welsh band, known for their hits ‘Buck Rogers’, ‘Comfort in Sound’ and ‘7 Days in the Sun’, would continue to release music and tour.

The band are still working nowadays, with session drummer Karl Brazil taking up the place vacated by Lee’s replacement, Mark Richardson (ex-Skunk Anansie).

Singer and guitarist, Grant Nicholas was quoted at the time as saying: “Jon would have wanted us to carry on.”
