Charlatans drummer, Jon Brookes died yesterday August 13 age 44. He was following treatment for brain tumor in hospital.

Brookes was diagnosed with brain tumor after collapsing on stage in Philadelphia, three years ago that lead to the cancellation of the rest of their tour. Last month the band stated that he had recovered well from a second surgery.

He was a founding member of the Charlatans.

This is the second time mourns the loss of a member after keyboardist Rob Collins died in a car accident in 1996.

Rest in peace Jon Brookes…
