Paul Raven RIP

I’m definetely the stupidest Prong fan in the world.

I’ve just found out this morning that Raven, Prong’s bassist at CLEANSING era has of a suspected heart attack at age 46. That’s October 22nd 2007!! Before he became Prong’s bassist, Raven was a member of post-punk band Killing Joke, which was hero to Prong. Killing Joke had hits including Love Like Blood and Pandemonium, and were covered by Metallica and Foo Fighters.

Raven’s music career included stints in Neon Hearts and glam rock band Kitsch before he replaced original Killing Joke bassist Youth in 1982.

He left the band in 1987 before forming Murder Inc and joining Ministry, Prong and Mob Research.

My deep condolences.
