Jake Black of Alabama 3 has died

Jake Black, co-founder of Brixton, UK band Alabama 3, has passed away.

Black (aka The Very Reverend Dr. D Wayne Love) formed Alabama 3 with Rob Spragg (aka Larry Love) in London in 1995. Their song ‘Wake Up This Morning’ was used as the theme for The Sopranos.

It was also lampooned in an episode of The Simpsons when Maggie shot Fat Tony.

Alabama 3 announced the news on Facebook:

Early this afternoon, on a beautiful summer’s day, our friend, comrade and spiritual teacher, Jake Black AKA The Very Reverend D.Wayne Love, passed over to the higher ground. After a magnificent performance at the Highpoint Festival in Lancashire, D.Wayne in his supreme wisdom decided it was the appropriate moment for his ascension into the next level.

The transition was painless and peaceful. He was surrounded by brothers Larry Love, L.B. Dope, The Spirit, Jonny Jamm and Sister Therese Mullan.
We are heartbroken.

All that remains for us, at this moment, is to carry out his precise instructions regarding the continuation of his teachings as a First Minister of The Presleyterian Church of Elvis The Divine and continue The Great Work.

His last words, which we have yet to decipher, were “Tweet Tweet, Possil Fleet”.
