"Our hearts are with Paully's family, and we ask that you respect our need for privacy at this time."

The Screaming Jets formed in Newcastle's famous pub rock scene in 1989, and had three albums that reached the top five on the ARIA charts.

They are perhaps best known for their catchy rock anthem "Better", which reached number 4 on the singles charts in 1991.
