Jay Bennett dies in his sleep at age 45

 

Chicago Tribune music critic, Greg Kot, wrote an article about yesterday’s passing off ex-Wilco member, Jay Bennett here. Jay died in his sleep on Sunday at the tender age of 45.

I remember Jay from his days in Titantic Love Affair and, of course, as a key figure in the formulation of the Wilco we all know today. I always thought his contribution to the band pushed them towards more interesting pathways that Tweedy & Wilco would not have explored without his prodding.

Condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
