Musician Richard Swift, known for his work with The Black Keys and The Shins, died at 41 years old. Fellow bandmate Dan Auerbach confirmed the news via social media.

“He was the funniest person we ever met, one of the most talented musicians we have ever worked with and we feel so honored to have known him,” Auerbach and fellow Black Keys member Patrick Carney wrote via Twitter. “RIP Richard.”

Swift toured with the band in 2014. He also performed with Auerbach's other group, the Arcs, in addition to being a member of The Shins from 2011 to 2016.

A GoFundMe page was started for Swift on June 19, saying he was "hospitalized due to a serious medical condition."
