Yesterday morning, Lee passed away due to complications from eye surgery.

We are all deeply wounded, white and shaking with shock, by this sudden loss of our great friend. He brought us all together. He brought out the best in us, enabled and encouraged us to be at our absolute best in music and life. I personally cannot imagine being where i am today without all Lee put together.

I say all this with zero hyperbole, and those who knew him best no doubt feel the same way we do at this moment. Our hearts go out to his amazing family and all his friends, as well as anyone whose supported us in the last 6 years. Know that Lee loved, appreciated, and cared about all of you very much, as do we.

We'll miss you forever.

He was one of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing..for the way he treated his friends and how he has always driven the band in ever better ways for all of you.I will miss watching his energetic playing and our late night diner wise-cracks. Rest In Peace Lee.

i'm overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and condolences from everyone. We all truly appreciate it.

like i said, we're going to miss him greatly. there's really nothing more i can say than that. he was my best friend, and i'll miss making music with him, but more than that i'm going to miss just chilling with him, complaining about the state of everything, ogling young ladies, and making fun of people with him.

i'll be sure to keep everyone updated on everything that happens. anything that we decide to do will be with Lee in mind, and probably always will be.

take care everyone.

- all of us.
