Craig Gill, the drummer of Manchester alt-rock band Inspiral Carpets, has died at the age of 44. The band, behind songs This Is How It Feels and Dragging Me Down, announced in a statement on Tuesday that the musician had died.

“It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our drummer and close friend, Craig Gill,” they wrote. No details of his death were released.

“We were honoured to work alongside him for the last 30 years,” they wrote. “To say we’ll miss him is an understatement. He was the beating heart of the Inspirals in more ways than one.”
