Toby Smith, the original keyboard player for Jamiroquai, passed away this week.
Smith, who was 46 years old, was with the band from 1992 but left in 2002 due to "family commitments".
Jamiroquai news site Funkin wrote: "He set up a recording studio at his home, started producing cider with some friends, built up a love (and garage) of classic cars and was a keen horse rider. This is a very sad day for all Jamiroquai fans. Much love to his wife, children and the rest of his family."
Jamiroquai member Stuart Zender paid tribute to Smith on Instagram.
