A famous rock band singer from New York City has sadly taken his final breath. Stewart Lupton has passed away at the young age of only 43 years old.
At this time, a cause for his passing has not been released. Please join us in praying for his family during this difficult time. We ask for God's healing comfort to surround them as they mourn her loss.
Stewart was the singer of the 1990s rock band known as Jonathan Fire*Eater. The group was said to have been some of the earliest pioneers of the first of the wave of rock bands that burst out of New York in the late 1990s and early ’00s and helped pave the way for the Strokes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, TV on the Radio and others, reported Page Six.
As times changed and the music industry advanced, Jonathan Fire*Eater found themselves lost in the mix. The band split up in 1997. After the break up, Lupton reportedly moved back to his home in Washington D.C. to study poetry at George Washington University.
He went on to create another band in 2009 and was releasing music in past years. However, none of the band's creations were as notable as those of Jonathan Fire*Eater.
"However, Jonathan Fire*Eater received its proper due in Lizzy Goodman’s sprawling 2017 oral history of the early ’00s New York scene, 'Meet Me in the Bathroom,' which essentially begins with a chapter on the group and its lasting influence," reported Page Six.
