In sad news, Chris Feinstein, the bassist for Ryan Adams group The Cardinals, has reportedly died. The  report came via Lost Highway records (Ryan Adams’ Label) who don’t explain the situation in full but sent a message that he will be ‘deeply missed by all of us here at Lost Highway and throughout the entire music community, this is the saddest day of my life. I lost my best friend today…things will never be quite the same.’

We are stunned and shocked and will keep you posted as more news streams through.
