Crowded House drummer Peter Jones passes away
Peter Jones, drummer for Crowded House, has passed away from brain cancer at the age of 45.
A statement on the band's official website read: "We are in mourning today for the death of Pete Jones. We remember him as a warm-hearted, funny and talented man, who was valuable member of Crowded House. He played with style and spirit. We salute him and send our love and best thoughts to his family and friends.
Incredibly, Jones isn't the first Crowded House sticksman to pass on. Jones joined the band in 1994 to replace Paul Hester - who had originally formed the band with Neil Finn - who committed suicide in 2005.
