Crowded House issued a statement on their website to let fans know about Peter Jones’s passing it reads:
"We are in mourning today for the death of Peter Jones. We remember him as a warm-hearted, funny and talented man, who was a valuable member of Crowded House. He played with style and spirit. We salute him and send our love and best thoughts to his family and friends."
Jones had been battling brain cancer for about a year and unfortunately he didn’t win the fight. Jones was a schoolteacher before he joined the band in 1994 and he actually stayed with the band for just two years because they broke up in 1996. No word yet on funeral plans for Jones but one thing is certain the world definitely lost a very talented musician and a wonderful man. Rest in peace Peter Jones you will definitely be missed.
