RIP Derek Jones (Falling in Reverse): 1984 – 2020

This is a story you don’t expect to wake to. Derek Jones, guitarist with Falling in Reverse, has left us aged only 35. The death has been confirmed by the band’s frontman Ronnie Radke via a post on Twitter.

Radke says:

I’ll never forget when you picked me up from jail in your old tour van to start Falling In Reverse. Your spirit will be interwoven through the music I write forever. Rest in peace Derek Jones. My heart is broken.

Jones co-founded the band with Radke and featured on all four studio albums. No cause of death has been released, but really what does it matter? Our hearts go out to his family, friends and bandmates. And as ever, we will let an example of his work stand as a memory of another lost brother.
