[Post updated after Young's death confirmed]

Primal Scream guitarist Robert "Throb" Young has died at the age of 49.  According to reports police discovered Young's body in his flat in Sussex, England on September 9th and are not considering his death suspicious.

Primal Scream issued the following statement:

"We have lost our comrade and brother Robert Young.
A beautiful and deeply soulful man.
He was an irreplaceable talent, much admired amongst his peers,
In the words of Johnny Marr "Throb with a gold top Les Paul -unbeatable"

He was a true rock and roller. He walked the walk.
He had "Heart & Soul" tattooed on his arm and I'm sure on his heart too.
He once said to me "When we go onstage it's a war between us and the audience"
He never let go of that attitude.

Our love and thoughts are with his sons Brandon and Miles and their mother Jane, his wife Rachel, and his immediate family."

Many of Young's musical friends and colleagues such as Bobby Gillespie, Liam Gallagher, Paul (Bonehead) Arthurs, Tim Burgess, and Andy Bell have offered their condolences, some of which can be read below.  Creation Records founder Alan McGee shared his thoughts and memories about Young here.
