creaming Trees drummer Mark Pickerel has led tributes to his former bandmate and “big brother” Mark Lanegan following his death aged 57.

Members of the rock community including Iggy Pop, Peter Hook and John Cale were among those to remember Lanegan and his “wild life that some of us could only dream of”.

A post on the musician’s official Twitter account said he died at his home in Killarney, Ireland, on Tuesday morning.

Lanegan was a member of rock bands Queens of the Stone Age and The Gutter Twins – and collaborated with artists such as Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain.

He was also known for fronting grunge band Screaming Trees, and alongside Pickerel, Gary Lee Conner and Van Conner, produced some of the rock genre’s most psychedelic and experimental music.

In a series of tweets, Pickerel said: “Goodbye old friend, I’ll miss you, I love you,” and that he hoped the angels were “taking good care” of Lanegan.

He also shared a photo of them hugging and added: “May you truly Rest in Peace Big Brother @marklanegan.”

Lanegan joined Screaming Trees in the 1980s and went on to produce eight studio albums until the group’s split in 2000.

He first appeared on Queens of the Stone Age’s Rated R album in 2000 and lent his voice and songwriting talent to several songs.

He later formed The Gutter Twins with Afghan Whigs vocalist Greg Dulli.

Lanegan also featured on the 1995 album Above by Mad Season.

Punk star Iggy Pop, who was the lead singer of The Stooges, said he was a “fan” of Lanegan and had the “deepest respect” for him.

The US musician, whose real name is James Newell Osterberg Jr, shared a message on online, saying: “Mark Lanegan, RIP, deepest respect for you. Your fan, Iggy Pop”.

Co-founder of English rock bands Joy Division and New Order Peter Hook described Lanegan as a “lovely man” who led a “wild life.”
