Just seen on the Rampage FB page that Rae passed away last night. This is the post:

It is with deepest regret we inform you that Rampage Rae passed away last night.
He died as he lived, bravely, with pride and dignity.
We would like to thank everyone for the messages of support for Rae and the family during this very difficult time. The funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date.

Only met him a couple of times when he was gigging at our place; but he was a great guy, a great drummer, and clearly well loved and respected. Thoughts and prayers go out to Marianne, all his family and his Rampage family. You will be sorely missed big man. Carry on playing the drums wherever you are.

As with Mike Wizdom, we never physically knew Rae but did hear about his illness and were hoping for a happy ending. RIP and sincere condolences to his bandmates, family and friends.
