from jack white's facebook:

 

It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans.

Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects.

Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled.

We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.

Fucking sucks.

 

The only good that might possibly come out of this is another quality concept album.

Never got the chance to say hi to Ikey but that dude liked a few of my instagram pics. One of the few band members with a cool head and consistently did his thing. RIP Ikey..
