Lee Scott Revelle R.I.P.

6th August 2021

Last Monday, and with great sadness, my friend Pete texted me that our former bandmate, Lee Scott Revelle, had passed away the previous day, Sunday 1st August.

Lee had been hospitalised for a short time with an acute illness. His final Facebook update stated that the doctors were approaching the point when they were running out of options. The next posting was from his family, announcing Lee’s passing.

Lee and I met over our love of the 80s band Echo & the Bunnymen, and we formed a band together, bringing in my buddy Pete on bass. We only wrote a handful of songs, made one demo and played one gig, way out in Essex (east of London) in a sports pavillion. We earnt £1 … split four ways … minus mini cab fare and beers. Not a financial or artistic success, but an experience.

That band didn’t last long, but Lee continued to play, write and perform.

Pete, who’s also still making music, has an online radio show, and he’s dedicated this week’s one to Lee. Listen to it here:

  1. Wow, that sucks. 😦 Sorry for your (and his family’s) loss. He sounds like a great guy.

    Echo and the Bunnymen… There’s a name I haven’t heard in a while. They used to get play on the Friday Night 80s thing on an Atlanta radio station when I lived there.

    1. Hello Mr Ash, thank you for your message. Lee and I were in a band in the late 80s. I only found out from a mutual friend. We were not in contact, but it is still very sad. All the best – Paul.
