Funkobit: Jason Rae

Jason Rae, member of the Haggis Horns and husband of Corinne Bailey Rae, has been found dead in his Leeds home.

Rae played saxophone with the Haggis Horns, who gigged regularly in Yorkshire and worked with artists as diverse as Amy Winehouse and Nightmares On Wax. Jason had met Corinne while she was working as cloakroom attendant during her time studying in Leeds; they married in 2001.

West Yorkshire Police have arrested a man in connection with the death; it's believed Rae died of an overdose. A 32 year-old man is being investigated on suspicion of supplying controlled drugs.
