• Jimmy Lee Lindsey, Jr. died in his sleep on Wednesday morning. He was 29 years old.He is survived by his mother Devonna May, his father Jimmy Lindsey, and his sisters Leslie Lindsey, Stephanie Duncan and Gara May. He’ll be missed by music fans all over the world.

    With 22 full-length albums and over 100 releases, Jay dedicated his life to music. He played nearly one thousand shows in over 20 countries around the world. He was incredibly grateful for all the support his fans gave him over the years.

    I drove Jay and his band on two tours of Europe in 2008 and again in 2009. Jay wrote good music, had a good band, played from the heart and took no prisoners. A tragic end to someone who worked so hard to make music.
