(CelebrityAccess) — Jake Black, one of the founding members of the Brixton-based electronic fusion group Alabama 3 has died.
The news was announced by his bandmates in a post on Alabama 3’s Facebook page:
Early this afternoon, on a beautiful summer’s day, our friend, comrade and spiritual teacher, Jake Black AKA The Very Reverend D.Wayne Love, passed over to the higher ground. After a magnificent performance at the Highpoint Festival in Lancashire, D.Wayne in his supreme wisdom decided it was the appropriate moment for his ascension into the next level.
The transition was painless and peaceful. He was surrounded by brothers Larry Love, L.B. Dope, The Spirit, Jonny Jamm and Sister Therese Mullan.
We are heartbroken.
All that remains for us, at this moment, is to carry out his precise instructions regarding the continuation of his teachings as a First Minister of The Presleyterian Church of Elvis The Divine, and continue The Great Work.
His last words, which we have yet to decipher, were “Tweet Tweet, Possil Fleet”.
Alabama 3, often called A3 to avoid legal headaches with the American country rock band Alabama, are best known for their hit “Woke Up This Morning” which was featured in the opening credits of the hit HBO drama “The Sopranos.”
