While police continue to investigate the the suspected drug death of Jason Rae, he is already receiving tribute messages on a YouTube clip.

Rae, 31, who played alto and bass saxophone in the eight-piece funk band Haggis Horns, can be seen talking to the camera in a strong Scottish brogue as he introduces the group in a seven-minute clip on YouTube.

"Just heard the news. My prayers go to the band and to Corrine," wrote grlblu73 in the comments section of the video.

"RIP all prayers go to his family," wrote griffinollie.

The official Web site for his bereaved wife was updated March 24 to include a message from her record company: "EMI Records would like to offer its sincere condolences to Corinne Bailey Rae and the Rae family at this tragic time. We ask that the media respects Corinne's privacy and that of her entire family."

Meanwhile, with Easter Monday a public holiday in Britain, the band's MySpace page is yet to be updated.

The group's record company Web site, which quotes the band as having "The best f***ing horn section in the World!" according to producing wunderkid Mark Ronson, has not been modified to include news of the shock death of Rae.
