Bunnymen keyboardist killed in motorcycle crash

THE KEYBOARDIST from 1980s pop band Echo & The Bunnymen has been killed in a motorcycle accident on the Isle of Man.

Jake Brockman, 53,  a noted biking enthusiast, crashed his motorcycle on Tuesday night, while riding in the Isle of Man. He was rushed to a Nobles hospital, but died from his injuries.

The news comes as a bizarre twist of fate for the band; Brockman joined the The Bunneymen in 1989, after drummer Pete de Freitas died in a motorcycle accident.

The release of the band's eleventh studio album 'The Fountain' is due for release later this month.
