Killing Joke - Paul Raven Dead At 46

Influential bassist Paul Raven passed away on the 20th of October. A message posted on the MySpace page of his latest project Mob Research states:

"Mob Research founder and bassist Paul Raven passed away today Saturday 20th October, apparently from a heart attack. The cause of the attack is currently unknown. He had just arrived in Europe to commence recording with his friends Treponem Pal.

Raven was the charismatic bass player for Killing Joke for many years, also Prong and most recently Ministry and Mob Research. He was a great friend to many and a legendary bass player. We shall all miss Paul incredibly. When we have more information on his untimely passing and cause of death we will let you know. We are still in a state of shock. We understand the funeral services will be held in England. Any messages of condolence are welcomed.

We love and miss you man... "

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

Never a big fan of Killing Joke, but I just got into Prong where he does a great job. Too bad
