Maxi Jazz, lead singer of dance group Faithless, has died aged 65.
Writing on Facebook, the group wrote: “We are heartbroken to say that Maxi Jazz passed away last night. He is the man who changed our lives in so many ways.
“He gave the right meaning and message to our music.
“He’s a lovely human being, always making time for people, and has a mind that’s both profound and accessible. It’s been an honor and of course a pleasure to work with him.
“He is an excellent lyricist, a DJ, a Buddhist, a splendid stage, a car lover, a non-stop talker, a beauty, a moral compass and a genius.
“Rollo, Sister Bliss & The E-Type Boy x”.
Faithless formed in 1995 and is perhaps best known for the ecstatic hit Insomnia.
They have spearheaded some of the biggest festivals in the world, including Glastonbury.
