Jon Lee's suicide sparks an outpouring of grief on our messageboards...

Feeder fans have started posting messages on NME.COM, telling of their sense of loss following the death of band member JON LEE.

As revealed earlier today on NME.COM, Lee took his own life on Monday (January 7) at his home in Florida. He was aged 33.

Following the confirmation of Lee’s untimely death, fans have been posting messages of sympathy on the NME.COM messageboard dedicated to his life.

NME.COM Editor Anthony Thornton wrote: “Everyone at NME and NME.COM would like to say our thoughts are with Jon Lee’s family, friends and all Feeder fans following his tragic and sudden death.”

Two fans, Dan and Niki, sent their regards to friends and family of Lee, asking why “this tragic thing had to take place”.

Elsewhere, a fan called Loki looked back fondly at the group. She commented: “I remember my very first gig was going to see Feeder in Manchester, when I nearly got one of Jon’s drumsticks when he threw them into the croud.

“My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, and I hope that all of us who love Feeder and Jon so much, remember him as he should be remembered, hammering away at the drums on a sunny day in August 2001 with a big grin on his face at the Reading festival, as everyone bounced along to ‘Buck Rogers’.
