We hold a special place in our hearts for the time we spent playing music, laughing and travelling together. Laura was a bright light…her infectious energy and humour gave a spark to the early days of our band. Laura had a gift for design, a love of all things Texas and was instrumental in the early success of the band,” The group wrote.

“Her undeniable talents helped propel us beyond busking on street corners to stages all across Texas and the mid-West…Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones at this sad time.”

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Lynch quit the band in 1993.
