The keyboardist for Primal Scream, Bobby Gillespie, died in a house in Brighton, according to the band's lead vocalist.

According to his brother, he "passed away peacefully" surrounded by his family and close friends.

Felt was formed in 1985 by keyboardist Sebastian Armstrong, who was born in Birmingham, according to Pitchfork.
