LAdy Jaye

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and her reactivated Psychic TV aka PTV3 are terribly sad to announce the cancellation of their November North American tour dates. This decision is entirely due to the unexpected passing of band member Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge.

Lady Jaye died suddenly on Tuesday 9th October 2007 at home in Brooklyn, New York from a previously undiagnosed heart condition which is thought to have been connected with her long-term battle with stomach cancer. Lady Jaye collapsed and died in the arms of her heartbroken "other half" Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

sad news continued below....

Being overwhelmed by the enormity of their loss, Lady Jaye's significant other, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and the other surviving band members of Psychic TV/PTV3 are not able to properly meet the demands of touring and performance. Obviously, her absence onstage , the conspicuous loss of her unique charisma, music and humor would be an unbearable emotional reality to confront night after night.

The group, who have been touring to promote their first studio album in 12 years, will announce future plans after an appropriate period of mourning. [Genesis Breyer P-Orridge]

That has got to be the most comforting way to die. For both parties.

Be strong, you are in our hearts. You are so beautiful inside . This quote of yours gets me through...."I'll never give up being into trying to change the world." Love to you, Norma

Please don't overwhelm me with too many emails, but we wanted to thank you all for the incredible kindness and respect you have shown in your comments. Lady Jaye re-inspired my art and life. Missing her physical presence is the hardest thing we've ever had to do. But she would expect us to carry on being creative and trying to change the world and we shall. There will be a Memorial Gathering at Participant Inc. on East Houston, Saturday January 12th. Just to meet and respect her wonderful loving life.

The saddest story I've read in a long time maybe ever! Great to see you at the Butthole Surfers Tues night. You sure have some kind of power to clam a room! This story of these two lives as one has me obsessed with doing as much research on Breyer as I can find.
