Maxi Jazz Cause Of Death – How Did He Die? He was 65

Maxi Jazz, the British musician best known as the lead vocalist for dance group Faithless, has died, according to the band.

The band announced Jazz’s passing in a Facebook post on Saturday. The singer, born Maxwell Fraser, was 65 years old.

“He was a lovely human being with time for everyone and a wisdom that was both profound and accessible. It was an honour and, of course, a true pleasure to work with him.

“He was a brilliant lyricist, a DJ, a Buddhist, a magnificent stage presence, car lover, endless talker, beautiful person, moral compass and genius.”

Sister Bliss, the group’s keyboardist, said on Twitter: “Sending love to all of you who shared our musical journey. Look after each other y’hear.”

Jazz was a lifelong fan of British soccer club Crystal Palace and even became the team’s associate director in 2012, according to a statement from the club. To honor his life, the team will walk out to a song by Faithless on Boxing Day on Monday, according to the statement.

“Your voice & your music will live on forever,” wrote British DJ duo CamelPhat on Twitter. “From nightclub to festival you brought a whole new dynamic to the dancefloor. A proper inspiration to us all.”

Faithless formed in 1995 and is perhaps best known for its trance hits Insomnia, God Is A DJ and We Come 1.

They have headlined some of the biggest festivals in the world, including Glastonbury, and have often been seen as political in nature.
