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.

Music is the refuge of souls ulcerated by happiness.

Very sad, indeed. Condolences to family and friends, as well as his fans (including me) worldwide.

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

I never post anything anywhere without doing more than basic research, often in depth.

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.

The most funky bassist with a jazz feel for contrapuntal lines. And an absolute rockstar on stage. RIP you truly were a Giant.
