!!! Honour Fuchs

Rockers CHK CHK CHK (!!!) have paid tribute to JERRY FUCHS after the drummer tragically plunged to his death in an elevator shaft.
The 34-year-old musician was travelling in a freight elevator at a fundraiser in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday (08Nov09) when it stopped a few feet above the fifth floor.
He attempted to jump to safety but his clothing got caught and he fell five storeys to his death.
!!! have since taken to the internet to written a touching dedication to the late percussionist, urging fans to tell loved ones how important they are.
In a post on the band's MySpace.com page, the rockers write, "Thanks to everyone who has contacted us with their love and support. We could never put into words how special a person Jerry was and how much we loved him. We ask that you tell all the people you care about and are thankful for that you love them. We wish we still had Jerry."
Fuchs, who also played in Maserati and The Juan MACLean, is the second !!! drummer to meet a tragic death - Mikel Gius was killed while riding his bicycle in 2005.
