It is with the deepest sadness and regret that we must break the devastating news that our best friend and long-time rhythm guitarist Chris Warwick died this morning.

He had slipped into a coma after suffering heart failure ten days ago, and his condition only deteriorated as time went on. We’re completely heartbroken at Chris’s passing, and at his family’s suffering over the past ten days.

Chris was only 41-years-old, and he leaves behind his beloved partner Katie, who is due to have their second child any day now, and their beautiful 4-year-old son Benji.

Chris is survived by his parents and his sister and brother. We’ll let you know of funeral arrangements when we can. Goodbye, sweet brother — you’ll be in our hearts and minds forever. Stay beautiful. xxx
