“Finding the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts over losing my brother has been difficult." Howe's sister, Sadie, added. “Our family would like to thank you for your compassion and the outpouring of love we are receiving.”

It comes after the vocalist suffered an earlier heart attack in September 2017, later saying: “It was a bad one, apparently -- I don’t remember anything about it. I was driving. And I was found in my car at a stop sign, unconscious … It took me a long time to recover.”

Howe rose to fame as the lead singer for Bad Company in the '80s when he replaced singer Paul Rodgers, but left the band in 1994 when the musos reportedly fought over financial matters.
