Default Paul Raven R.I.P

This happened on Saturday (20/10/07). R.I.P.

GENEVA - Ministry bassist Paul Raven has died of an apparent heart attack, according to a statement from a Ministry publicist.

Raven's body was found Saturday in a private home in a small French village on the Swiss border. He was 46.

The British-born Raven, also known for his work with bands Killing Joke and Prong, was in Geneva working on a new release.

He established himself with the seminal post-punk/industrial group Killing Joke and most recently was nominated for a 2006 Grammy for best metal performance.

Raven's newest project, Mob Research, was in the final mixing and mastering phases and was set for release next year.

"Not only was Raven an extraordinary talent, but one of my closest dearest friends," Ministry's Al Jourgensen said Monday in the statement.

"Our condolences and prayers go to his immediate family. He will be truly missed by artists, musicians and his fans the world over."

I'm not a big fan of Ministry, but Killing Joke was the ****. Unfortunate loss.

Whoa. That's far too young to die. I have a friend who's a big fan of Ministry and he hasn't mentioned this yet. I wonder if he knows.
