Primal Scream Founder Dies

Robert “Throb” Young, cofounder of Primal Scream, died early September, according to the band.  

A former bandmate posted a notice that Young died “over the weekend,” meaning Sept. 6-7.

Young left the band in 2006 for what was described as “problems in his personal life.”  U.K. artists have been posting tributes. No more information was available at press time.
