can be said?? Thankyou Jon for the happy memories of all the gigs
and all th things you've signed for me over the years. The drumstick
you signed will be treasured. I hope where ever you are now you
are at peace and you are happy. You will be missed so much.
C, (Leanne Court)
Lee, you will always be remembered and recognised as a man who loved
and lived music as well as the best drummer of our time. Peace,
Love and respect.
still can't quite believe it. I'm a huge fan of Feeder and when
I met Jon he was always so happy. A fantastic talented man who was
always willing to talk to his fans and make us smile. My most fitting
memory of him was after a gig at Ross on Wye festival where he was
with his mum and was taking her to get cleaned up because he had
spilt wine on her. My thoughts go out to his family and friends
especially his mother because I had the pleasure of meeting her.
She's a lovely woman and I hope that she is ok at such a distressing
time. My thoughts go out to everyone on the feederweb messageboard
too and hope that they are all coping. I'm crying my eyes out still
:( I'm listening to all Feeder's music (I have it all in some format
or another) and trying to think of all the good times I've had because
of that man but it's hard. He always managed to make me happy, along
with Grant and Taka who my thoughts go out to they could make me
the happiest person alive. Yesterday went too soon will always always
make me cry now though. It's a beautiful beautiful song.
ever lasts forever, we're like flowers in this vase together* Piece

Love Lellie ~x~
for all the great times youve given me Jon. love you, and will remember
and miss you forever.
xxx love you,
Lee was an amzingly talented man, he's touched so many lives through
his work and it deeply saddens me that he felt the need to take
his own life. He'll remain in my heart and memory, and will live
on in the music and spirit of Feeder. May he rest in peace.
thoughts are with all that knew him and especially to his family
and bandmates, this is such a sad and this is a truly tragic time
:( Jon was fantastic! rest in peace !! Jon you are an inspiration
and in ur music u will live on! feeder u rock and always will, peace
and respect and see you Jon on the otherside love and respect to
hope you are getting high with all our absent friends. God bless.
Grant and all the friends and family of Jon, I am deeply sorry about
the sad news, my heart goes out to you all.
hope the others and his family are ok or as best as can be expected
and just to tell them that they will get over it but it will take
time but they will get through this.
was so sorry to hear that Jon took his life. What can you say? You
think someone has the world at their feet and then........ it all
collapses. Hope Feeder can get the strength to carry on. You were
just breaking... Love and best wishes,
hit it man.....You were so fucking talented man....... what happened............
you tried for so long to reach this point.......... you reached
it......... you fell off the edge................WHY???????????
music aint the same without you..... "drinking myself to sleep again.......................
Taka and Grant,
Don't give up on the band you are too good and being a band myself
who play, or at least try to emulate what you have got would be
a double tragedy to stop. Jon was an awesome and an inspiration
to my drummer so grieve and in time mayve the melody will you smile.
am really upset and sorry to hear about Jon Lee. I will miss him
loads. Deepest sympathy,
Lee was the best drummer Iknow and he will be missed by everyone.
I just wish you were still here to carry on your brilliant work.
There will always be a place in my heart for you. We will never
you will be missed... you brought a light into a lot of people's
lives, a light that will always glow in our hearts. You were loved
by many, and we will never forget you. May the music live on until
tomorrow, and shine on long into the future. You'll never be forgotten.
Tomorrow Shine, Jon
was very saddened and shocked to learn of Jon's death. Feeder was
one of the bands that made Reading 2001 for me - they really were
worth the mile trek from my tent in the blazing August heat. Whoever
is brave enough to step in Jon's shoes will have a hard act to follow.
Whatever Jon's reasons for taking his life, he will still be remembered
as a fantastic musician and as a fundamental part of a band that
have achieved so much and can still go much further. Rest in peace.
was very sorry to hear the news that Jon Lee had died. He will be
sadly missed by all of us fans. I would like to send my deepest
sympathy to his family, friends and the rest of the band. My thoughts
are with you all.
Lee will be sadly missed in the music world but he has left his
mark on the music world that nothing or nobody can take away! he
was and still is an inspiration to many! his music and memory will
live on forever R.I.P. Jon Lee
have never been a massive Feeder fan but the death of Jon has really
shocked me. I saw them live during the summer. I think it just brings
everything home, how some one we think has so much sees themselves
as having nothing and no-one. I offer my most sincere sympathy to
his family friends loved ones and fellow band members.
go out Jon's wife and kid + his fellow band members
Rest in peace man,
miss u Jon! Met you only a few months back and you gave us free
beer in Newport! True rocker! Rock on !-!
is overly,overly upsetting, condolenses to friends and family. Jon
was a great, talented man who music lovers will miss very much.
His talent will be remembered always.
shocking to hear about Jon. Hope he finds the happiness he's looking
a big fan of Feeder, although I'm not totally obsessed with them
like I am the phonics. I've met Grant and seen feeder at the 'Phonics
November gig at wembley. It was tragic what happened to Jon. Whenever
anyone as young as 33 dies it's tragic. I hope Jon rests in peace
and my thoughts are with his family and friends because they're
the ones that matter in all this. I wish feeder the best of luck
also if they decide to carry on because they're a great band and
they deserve to do well. R.I.P Jon
To an amazing talent and a tragic loss You will be in my heart forever
and always Thank you hugely for an unforgetable night on December
2nd Jon Henry Lee you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace. All
just wanna say that, I saw Feeder for the 1st time on November 18th
supporting Stereophonics, and that they were excellent and I have
loved them ever since! I was really shocked and upset when i found
out. My sympathy goes towards his band members, friends, family
and fans. Rest In Peace Jon. Love from,
a truly sad week. I guess we're all wonderin 'Why?', but sadly we'll
never know.. His spirit will live on, Feeder fans will make sure
of that. Sleep well Jon boy, you'll bw sorely missed.
sincerest sympathies go out to the band, families, friends and fans
who have all been affected by his death. He'll definately be missed.
I never got to see Feeder live, I will say that I have had their
music in my heart for years now. Jon was a part of something amazing
that has changed my life. When I didn't have anyone to talk to or
was feeling down I always relied on Feeder to pick me back up. They
are my inspiration still and I cannot thank Jon enough for being
the wonderful musician he was. His superb talents will never be
forgotten. I hold a special place in my heart for him. God bless.
Kristi Paige Atlanta, GA USA
this difficult time my heart goes out to all of Jons' friends, family,
fans and everyonewho knew him. So young and so talened, he will
be sadly missed but never forgotten. God bless. R.I.P.
I first heard the news, I was studying and got a phone call from
my mate, who said that he had sad news for me, and it was that "Feeder's
drummer has committed suicide at his home in Miami". I wasn't very
sure about this, and so checked it out on Feederweb. When all was
revealed my eyes started to water, and ever since I have been crying
on my own for most of the days gone by.
will never forget my memories of Jon, especially at the Leeds met
gig when he was holding a can of beer in his hand and I was shouting
telling him to throw it towards me, along with a few others, and
there we were confusing the poor chap, as he was trying to pick
one of us out to throw it to!.
will also never forget the time he saw me sing "Yesterday Went Too
Soon" and "Cement" at the same gig and took a little glance at me
when I was swaying my arms during "High". He also really enjoyed
his work, and you could see that with the way he had those big grins
when he was on stage. He was like no other, many of todays stars
just care about themselves and the money, while Jon loved hanging
around with the fans and enjoyed the satisfaction being part of
a band or a team can offer. Being in a band and playing the drums
was more of a hobby to him than a job, and that's the way everyone
should be. He set an exellent example.
also remebered fans very well from past experiences, which was very
unique of a person who met so many people when the band are out
in the public eye so many times.
mate, it's been a magnificent six years knowing you, it just won't
be the same. Rest In Peace, I hope heaven will be a better place.
was a man of exreme talent and commitment to his band and fans.
A very popular and lively charactor who enhanced Feeder's chemistry.
Having met Jon a few times in 2000 and 2001 I can honestly say that
he was a truly nice and genuine guy, not phased by fame or fortune.
After a gig Jon would often be keen to visit the awaiting fans and
would have a very uplifting effect on everyone he chatted to. He
was a very easy-going and friendly man. He will be dearly missed
by many. My thoughts go out to his family, friends, band mates,
co-workers, fans and everyone else who was touched by his unique
personality. May he rest in peace.
will always remember '96 when they were on tour almost all the time.
I went to about 10 shows. Jon, Taka and Grant were always so nice
and let me in for soundchecks and put me on the guest list and I
remember jon on crutches with a broken ankle and still finishing
the tour. Rest in peace Jon. I will miss you. You were an excellent
drummer. Love to Grant and Taka from,
a band who tragically lost one of their own in August 2001, all
the members of Boot50 would like to express their condolences to
Jon's family and friends, and of course to the rest of Feeder. Our
thoughts are with you...
hard to believe, what a tragedy, a brilliant drummer to form a fantastic
band!! My heart felt condolences to his family, friends, fellow
band members and fans.
Sorry to hear about the death of the member of your band people
at my school are upset about it.
I hope everyone in the band is ok. I know you probably get alot
of emails like this, but after a close death every little caring
message helps. So I hope you all take this ok.
As a new fan of feeder never got the chance to meet jon such a tradegdy
feeder did so much for welsh pop music and were really going places
just hope Taka and Grant find the strength to carry on,
I read your message on the unofficial site and I also was inspired
by the great drummer. Been a fan sincde 97/8 and loved him the most
will be missed, I'm shocked! saira
I returned from holiday in Cuba, and as Feeder are not as big over
there, I was horrified to find this out! What kind of news is this
to return to? I have been a fan since about 97, and as a child was
always thought of as a little strange to like a band that had not
been heard of by my fellow Spice Girl and Britney teen boppers!
I'm now fourteen years old and this is immensely shocking news.
I just wanna thank a brill drummer for inspiring me to take up drumming
lessons and providing me with awesome music to listen to. Condolences
to all the band, his family and especially cameron.
sai xxxxxxxxxxxxx rest in peace x
Sorry to hear this news , I have a deep felt sorrow for everyone
involved with his death, family , friends, bandmates and the fans.
I just learned about feeder today , I saw the video for piece by
piece and after hearing that one song , I got hooked. After getting
the cd , I looked up some sites and saw the news. I am really sad
to see such a good drummer go. I hope feeder moves on, I dont think
they will ever be the same, but they have made an impression on
me and being another great band from the U.K.
- Jon Lee We will miss you , I know I will,
am very sad about the death of Jon Lee. I worked with him back in
the dark ages and will miss him
I know this is late, but I just wanted to assure you that I Jezzie
and all my friends here in Ireland are sharing the grief of Jon's
premature death. Although there's nothing I can say that hasn't
already been said, I think it's important that us fans continue
showing support for Grant and Taka, especially considering their
concern for us by making it known that they will continue. As is
obvious, you know more about Feeder than I do and I would also like
to thank you for creating such a genuine and heartfelt tribute to
one of the great drummers of our time.
Lee was a great drummer and I will miss him.
a Feeder Fan (J. Wilkans)
you will be missed by all your fans the rock era has ended.
Jon boy, RIP big man,
NO1 feeder fan
I don't what to say except I'm a new fan. I think you will rock
on forever dude,
just wanted to say I went to see Feeder for the first time last
year and it changed my life foe ever!
has lost its melody, Rhythm has lost a beat, but heaven has gained
an angel. Your music has got me through many tough times, I only
wish you had your own "Feeder" to make you smile.
hope my condolances arn't too late, but going to see Feeder shortly,
and just brought back all the memories of such a talent.
Jon Lee was a huge credit to British music and had the potential
to be the best. I am glad such a great guy had such good friends,
to care and love him, Grant and Taka have paid the greatest tribute
to their dear friend by continuing the music Jon loved and just
shearly enjoyed doing!What a guy!!!! As for the fans, im sure he
couldn't have wished for a better fan base to support them, all
you Feeder fans, I have a lot of respect for you, I just hope the
songs mean as much to you as they do to me!! Truely a legend, he
will always have my respect from the day he gained it, hearing Buck
Rogers on the Steve Lamac show, just started this great thing for
me. I can only thank the three hearts of Feeder for this!!!
Always in the heart......
the best drummer ever, the best man ever, the best friend ever...
We miss you from Spain too!!
el mejor batería de la historia, la mejor persona de la historia,
el mejor amigo de la historia... También te añoramos desde España!!
two years now. erm I'm a bit late,but I dont care . He was amazing
all around. One of the best drummers british band have ever seen
without a doubt.im listenin to picures of perfect youth at the moment.
I luv feeder and even though there music now is awesome Jon will
never ever be forgoten. keep playin the crazy beats jon. buddy lee
think Jon Lee was an outstanding man who can be seen as an inspiration
to us all. Not only did he give an astounding contribution to the
world of music, but he also opened our eyes to how so many people
suffer with problems in private. What he did showed how brave and
courageous he was and still is in all of our minds. People sometimes
see suicide as an easy way out, but to me i think of it as audatious
accomplishment and showed us how important life is. He lived his
life to it's full potential and hopefully his actions will motivate
others to believe in themselves and keep going. Jon was loved by
everyone: friends, family and fans, and we will continue to cherish
him as a part of our lives!
always, Dulcie xxx
just like to say how deeply upset I was when I found out Jon had
takn his own life 2 years on and I still can't believe what has
happened, I'd like to say how sorry I am, and how my thoughts are
still with all family friends fellow band mates and fans. I have
taken up drums, grade 6 now and I would love to be as good as jon
someday, rest in piece Jon, I'll never forget the amazing drummer
you where, x x x x x x x x
were loved so much by everyone, and for all those years as a musicain,
a father and a husband we thank you. i hope your up some were good
were all pain and strains are gone. Rock on.
is the saddest moment, in all Feeder history.
on Jon-boy. Say hi to Kurt for me ;-)
I can think about is "why"? It's just sooooo sad. My condolences
to Tatiana and the rest of the band. Jon you will be missed and
in peace Jon, I hope you've found the peace you've been looking
new fan of the band but as I am the same age it's such a loss at
such a young age. My heartfelt sympathy goes to Jon's family and
all friends and fans alike.
will be greatly missed.
the greatest drummer of all time is dead. I do hope Feeder continue
and I wish luck to everyone who knew him. Thanks and I know da goddzfather
will be praying for them
am not a massive feeder fan, but i also saw feeder in december.
I was deeply sadened by his death as also offer my condolences to
his family and to the rest of the band. R.I.P
would say that I am not the biggest of Feeder fans but as the others
I found myself shocked at the fact that a person with what seemed
a perfect life brings themself to killing themselves. R.I.P Jon
and I send my sympathy to every one who loved him and the band.
think its such a bad thing to happen. I could never take my own
life and if there is an after life or whatever and Jon Lee is able
to read this then I want him to be happy where he is now because
he obviously was really unhappy inside. My greatest sympathy to
all who admired him as did I. Yours,
whatever reason Jon had to do this to himself I hope he realises
how sorely missed he will be, by the fans of his music, friends,
family and loved ones. My deepest sympathys to Grant and Taka, it
must be a very hard time for everyone who knew him.
well gutting about Jon. Theres not much I really can say and I think
I speak for alot of us when I say this - he was a legend in my view
the best drummer i heard since Nirvana. He's gunna be sadly missed
by all his top fans, some names im gunna mention my mates. We're
all top Feeder fans - Nick, Chris, Ceri, Steve, John, Hilly, Laura,
Liz, Michael and so many others around the world. My deepest sorrow
for his wife and boy and the other band members. I will be there
at the funeral in Newport. Rest in peace Jon Lee (1968-2002)
rule dude. I hope you found what you were lookin for. See I had
to add more from the last message to say rest in peace man.
grieve for me, for now i'm free, I'm following paths God made for
me. I took his hand, I heard him call, Then turned and bid farewell
could not stay another day,To laugh, to love, to sing, to play,
Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found my peace at close
if my parting left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy, A friendship
shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
not burdened, deep with sorrow. I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full...I've savoured much, Good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.
my time seemed all too brief, Dont lenghthen it now with undued
grief, Lift up your heart and share with me, God wants me now, he
set me free.
to pass on my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Jon
Lee, a shit-hot drummer who'll be sadly missed.
Feeder fan, Scotland xxxxx
sorry to hear the news. It's a real tragedy. Just like to say that
Feeder are a great part that Jon was a essential part of, and that
he'll be sorely missed. Condolences to his family and bandmates,
must be horrible for them.
can never think of what to write when events like this happen, but
I guess everyone feels the same way I do, so maybe no words are
needed. The music is tribute enough.
for Jon & his family
upset and heart broken about the news I read today. First seen it
on nurofen.org and thought it was a wind up then found out it was
true. I'm very numb and shocked. Had the pleasure to meet Jon briefly
at a signing in Glasgow in June for the Turn promo and he has always
came across as a very warm and friendly person. I feel so deeply
upset and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with Jon's family
and of course Grant and Taka. Such a tragic loss. Gone but will
never be forgotton,
Met Jon about a year ago outside the Cathouse, he was the only one
from the band to stop & talk to us before the gig. I was really
nervous but he was soooo sweet & down to earth. Jon was a talented
guy & will be sadly missed by all his family & friends. Keep it
real Jon. xxxxxxxxxx
Lee lives on in Spirit"
I am so shocked and devastated at the news of Jon's death. I spent
last nite listening to all of their albums remembering when I saw
them live and remembering Jon sat behind his drums having so much
fun. He loved what he did and it showed! I would like to send my
condolences to everyone that was close to him and I know that he
will be missed by all. He was a talented guy and I will never forget
X x Rachel
cant imagine how his family, friends and Grant and Taka must be
feeling. It was such a shock for me and like you I spent the whole
evening listening to their past albums. I saw them twice and was
looking forward to seeing them again some time in the future their
music rocks n always will do. Rest in peace Jon, you'll be sadly
missed. All my love,
just want to say how shocked I was to hear about Jon dying so suddenly
it's such a shock! My thoughts go out to his family, Grant and Taka,
and all the other people who knew him. Feeder won't be the same
without him! R.I.P. Jon Lee 1968-2002
so upset the one guy from feeder who Ive met and now he's dead Im
really really gutted!
is a terrible lose and a tragedy. I give my condolences to all of
is family and to his fellow band mates Grant and Taxa... Rest In
ever I appear to be last to find out and you can all guess how I'm
feeling. It's such a sad loss.
was deeply shocked to hear of Jon's death, he was a friend of a
friend and I got to meet him recently, he was a really nice down
to earth bloke and he will be greatly missed by all. A very sad
thing has happened. Rest in peace Jon,
am a big Jon Lee fan, if not the biggest, Jan 7th was possibly the
worst day in the last couple of months. Jon Lee was my idol, he
was my inspiration to starting the drums. His style and technique
will live on forever in his many fans including myself, R.I.P jon.
Live forever mate,
I can say is R.I.P.Jon Lee, you will go on in our hearts, love ya
much to say really other than I feel that Jon would want us enjoying
life & not crying over him. And now he's found the happiness
he was looking for so should we. So I won't as many Feeder dudes
here and don't leave a sad message just a nice uplifting message...
GIVE IT UP FOR JON LEE THE BEST DRUMMER ROCK HAS EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU ROCK DUDE I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU
been fan for a year this February and more often than not I've found
myself tapping along to the drum beats when listening. I agree with
Feeder_Mosha and we should remember him for what he excelled in...
It's been never been dull and thanks for the memories Jon.
should remember him for his great talent and fill the world with
happy thoughts and memories of him!
have not been a Feeder fan for as long as some people I know, I
discovered them, the greatest band on earth about 6 months ago.
However, I feel devastated about the death of Jon Lee, a suberb
drummer, and he will be greatly missed. He had such a lot of talent
and I just can't believe he's gone. My thoughts are with Grant,
Taka and his wife and especially his little son. RIP Jon, I will
miss you a lot.
Lee was an inspiration to many, a hero to myself, and he'll be forever
missed. It's great to see so many tributes to the great man himself
- truly fitting for one of the most genuinely warm and friendly
people anyone ever had the chance to meet. Rest In Peace Jon boy.
would simply like to offer my deepest condolences to everyone who
knew, loved or respected Jon, especially his family and closest
friends. Jon was an incredible drummer and incredibly good person
with a big heart. I am sure he will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace,
Jon. We all love you. Love,
don't really know what to say, except my heart goes out to all of
Jons family, friends, fans and other band mates. This is such an
awful tragedy that I can't even begin to think why a man who seemed
to be so happy chose to end his life. Jon, your gonna be missed
so much as a musician and a great bloke who brought happiness to
so many. Rest in peace darlin', My love forever and always,
outstanding drummer, sadly missed. Luv John and Shaz from Carlin
How, Cleveland. UK
you will be missed. Every time I think of this tradgic occurance
I struggle to catch my breath. A great loss in the world but not
in our hearts. My condolancies to everyone who knew Jon. All the
best of luck to Grant and Taka with Feeder, I hope you can carry
on with the success you have had this year. I will be there watching
you in Sheffield the next time you come. All the best.
so many things I'd like to say about Jon and so many lovely stories
I could tell. I've been working with Feeder in various roles over
the years - student radio plugging to start with and now regional
radio and tv. The first time I ever met Jon was at Sheffield Leadmill
a few years back, I was overseeing some radio interviews and he
made me feel instantly at ease. First impressions last you know,
and as I got to know him better and better he really was a warm
and funny person and a good friend to be around.
are some very special memories that I hold dear now like the last
time I saw Jon (when we went to Porth to appear on the Pop Factory
in December and Red Dragon Radio in Cardiff.) We'd had a few glasses
of red wine before the radio interview and I've never heard the
band funnier and more on form - despite the fact that I'd managed
to tread on Jon's broken toe 3 times that day !!!
of the memories I have are of funny nights out with Jon, usually
drunken and usually in hotels, due to the fact that they worked
so hard and were always out doing promo and gigs, and always laughing
..... and that is how I will remember him always. I will also remember
the fact that he was the most talented drummer I have ever come
across and probably will ever come across. Feeder's music has been
the soundtrack to my life over the past few years as all my friends
- and most of all the band - know.
I will miss your smile, your laugh, your kind words and your dirty
jokes. Sleep well my beautiful friend. Lots of love,
Zoe Bestow - Hart Media
I'm not really a Feeder fan as such but I am deeply shocked and
upset to hear today about Jon Lee's death. I felt that it would
only be the right thing to do to say how sorry I am to hear about
this, and that my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and
friends. With love,
What can be said that has not been said by so many already. Jon
Lee you will live on in so many peoples hearts and memories and
these are things that can not be taken away. Jon had his reasons
for what he did but although we may not understand them we should
- you were an inspiration to thousands, rest in peace and remember,
music NEVER dies!
Lucy Bowen, Aberystwyth, Wales.
Upon hearing of Jon Lee's tragic death, many emotions ran through
my mind. Why did he do this? What was he going through to make him
think he had no other way out? I don't agree with what he did, but
I have to respect his decision when it comes down to it.
ran The Feeder Dynasty site for a few years but have since given
up on the website stuff, citing "being too busy" as my reason for
letting it all slip away. I never had the honour of meeting Jon
or any of the other members of Feeder, but I sure as hell have listened
to them for quite a while. My brother brought home the Polythene
cassette from England when he was there in 1996 I believe. Maybe
1997? Anyway, I recall it being Christmas time, that year. He told
me to pop in Side 2 and listen to the first track, which happened
to be Descend (my favorite song they've ever done). I immediately
liked the sound, I liked the beat, I liked the guitar riffs, and
I liked the voice of Grant.
then searched for everything Feeder-related throughout the next
while and started up with the Feeder Dynasty a short while later.
is all of this relevant? Because it's simply amazing how much one
person or a group of people can impact your life and your thoughts,
your feelings, your emotions. Now that one of the members of Feeder
has passed away, the face of the band has changed forever, and my
life has changed so much inside, even though I never had the honour
of meeting the man.
Lee, you are a legend to all Feeder fans and a loved one by us,
by your family, by your bandmates, and by everyone who knew you.
Why you decided you had to go, we'll never know. We will just remember
how much you meant to every single one of us and your memory will
Roil, formly of the Feeder Dynasty
RIP Jon you'll live on forever in all our hearts, we'll never forget
There are no words that can be found to describe the true heartbreak
felt over the loss of such a talented man. Never lucky enough to
meet the man myself but I respected him a great deal from afar.
Jon will live on in memory and music and will always be loved and
cherished rest in peace. Much
my name is June and I have been a growing Feeder fan for some time.
I have seen them at T in the Park a couple of times, but the best
yet was supporting Stereophonics in Glasgow in November. They were
phenomenal! I now have all their albums and I think they are tremendous.
I was saddened to hear about Jon's death. I think Feeder are just
about to reach their peak and I so hope that they continue! RIP
Jon, let your music live on!!
is still a shock to the system when you think about the untimely
death of Jon Lee. I found myself staring at a picture printed in
a recent NME, taken at his funeral. It was only then that I thought
about the reality of it all. Having seen Feeder live, and feeling
the magic that a Feeder gig can bring, it is such a shame to think
of the talent we have lost. It will never seem fair! I would like
to wish Feeder the best of luck in the future, and to let them know
my sympathy is with them.
hard to find something to say that hasn't already been said, even
a year on. It's hard even to try to say everything you want to.
Jon Lee was a fantastic person, with a fantastic talent which has
no end and no rivals. The strangest thing through all this is the
music, it's still the same songs that have been and always will
be, but they carry a different tune, a different meaning and a different
feeling. This is how personal the Feeder feeling is, it touches
you to the core and stays with you forever, just like the memories
of Jon will do.
and best wishes always,
like to pay my respects to Jon Lee. I have never been given an opportunity
to say how I really felt about Jon. Ever since I heard Feeder, i
was hooked onto them, they were great in every aspect. Jon was a
great man and a great dummer, i have never heard a drummer play
like he could, he made it look effortless.
To Grant and Taka, he was a great friend, a best friend. No one
knew why Jon had to go, but it was his decision, and as fans and
friends we had to respect his decision. Grant and Taka have coped
really well with this, they have managed to keep going. They have
got a new drummer (Mark Richardson) and they just keep going, I
can do nothing but admire them, they are a great band. They've put
Jon's event behind them but they haven't forgotten him. Jon could
put a smile on anyones face, he had somekind of cheerful force field
following him around, altogether he was a great guy, great friend,
great husband and a great father. We all miss him, the world has
lost an outstanding drummer. It's easy to imagine why God wanted
him back, because he was an angel on Earth. I have so much to say
about Jon and Feeder but I'd best stop now before anyone gets bored
- good luck to Feeder and God bless you Jon boy.
an incredible person and fantasticly talented drummer!
sorry i'm late for adding my tribute Jon but no matter how late
i may be you'll still always live in our hearts. Listening to the
classic yesterday went to soon,i still am always amazed at that
special something you applied to your drumming and as a learner
i consider you my drum God. Hope the grass is greener on the other
In Peace, Anna.xx
