Jon Lee

An English drummer for the successful British rock band Feeder.

He took up playing the drums, having acquired a drum kit in his teens, he teamed up in the early 1990s with Grant Nicholas to form a band called "Temper Temper".

Without much in the way of success, the two took to London to set up a new band called "Hum".

A new band called "Reel" and a record contract with the Echo Label followed in November 1994 when their name was "Real".

From here the band changed their name to Feeder named after Grant's goldfish. Lee worked hard with the band, touring heavily, which included an exhausting 125 venue tour of the United States.

Lee worked with Feeder throughout their major rise in success, including the band's first major hit album Echo Park.

His first taste of mainstream success was on the 2001 breakthrough hit single "Buck Rogers".

He already gained a lot of critical success with the band, when Feeder's debut album Polythene released in 1997.

Jon Lee committed suicide by hanging himself in 2002 at his Miami home.

He was 33 years of age.
