It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Raymond Shulman on March 30th, 2023.

Raymond passed away peacefully at home in London after battling a long illness. He is survived by his wife Barbara Tanner and his brothers Derek & Philip Shulman. His family requests privacy at this very sad time.

One of my first bass icons, a masterful player and a sheer joy to watch him on stage, his grins were simply priceless. RIP

RIP Ray. Gentle Giant's raw talent and compositions were unparalleled and continue to be a joy in my life. Ray's ability to occupy so many roles within that band was jaw dropping. Sail free great musician.
You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.
