We want to offer our sincere and deepest sympathy to John’s mother, his sister and his two children at this terrible time. Obviously I’m shocked at the news and consequently I’ll be offline for a while”.

Also the band announced in their most recent news : This sad news just came in from Lisa:
It’s with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform you that John Lever passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning after a short illness.
Me, his sister Angela, Mum, Dad & the rest of his family would like to thank you all for your love & support over the last couple of weeks.
