The Quiet Room Singer Commits Suicide

Glen "Pete" Jewell, former lead singer for late '90s prog rock band THE QUIET ROOM, passed away Saturday, June 25. Pete recorded "Reconceive" with the band in 2000, right before leaving the band permanently. THE QUIET ROOM was signed to Metal Blade Records and released two albums.

Pete, who reportedly committed suicide at his home, leaves behind a 5-year-old son, Tanner Dez Jewell. A memorial service will be held in Denver, Colorado and will be announced soon. A funeral fund for Pete and his son have been set up. Any donations are appreciated. There will also be a benefit concert held in Denver, Colorado.

At least he was smart enough to realize that he was moron, just like Kurt Cobain did, and spared the rest of the world to suffer his pathetic existence.

yeah sure, we ALL wanted to kill kut cobain, but the stupid idiot was just messed up on heroin. if you had to wake up next to courtney love, you'd make a nice little spot in your mouth for a shotgun, too!
poor kid, hopefully he won't remember.

Cobain "may" have been murdered it's hard to say because their are some oddities in how he was found and how poorly the scenes evidence was collecting by police....but Cobain had tried to end himself on more than one occaision so regardless he might be dead today anyway.

But both Cobain and Jewel left behind kids and that really sucks for both of them, if theres any tragedy the kindergarten age kid losing a father is it.

I thought Nirvana were decent, far from great or legendary.....

However, this IS about The Quiet Room not Nirvana....Anyone who fronts a band that offs themselves has a good shot at being likened to Cobain, even when it's grossly inappropriate. As I said, the only similarity to speak of is that both of the singers' kids will never have a father.

Pete was a friend of my co-worker Stef. I think it is grossly inappropriate for any of you to be saying some of these negative comments surounding his death. Stef was at one time his fiance and Tanner is very special to me and so many others. I wish you guys would THINK first before you start trashing some poor and innocent kid's father.

That's really sad I hope the kid will be ok. Although it seems like a really selfish thing to do nobody here has any right to judge so if you have nothing good to say just leave.

Its funny how everyone is so quick to judge...only Pete knew what was going on in his head and why he did this...He was a genuine person and a great dad to his son. have respect and if your going to talk sh*t then dont waste your time even posting a comment. For those of you in support Thank you! RIP Pete we all will miss you! Hope to see the supporters at the benefit concert! for the rest of you....I pray that none of you have to go through this because if you do I hope you think about all the Sh*t you said and the time you wasted trying to be cool and type a comment about someone you didnt even know......and really put into perspective that a great person is gone no matter how it happened.

Oh well. I didn't know him or what he was going through, but to say that you love your 5-year-old son and then kill yourself just sucks and is very selfish. Now the little boy doesn't have a father to look up to.

Thats pretty selfish and idiotic, no matter what he is giong through, he left behind his son. His 5 year old son. I am pretty sure that 5 year old will be quite disturbed when he finds out he has no dad cuz the dad commited suicide.

I think its awsome that you all have soooo much time on your hands to talk sh*t about him when in reality maybe what he was going through would have effected his son later on in life and true he is without his father but he still has alot of other people in his life that will take care of him but I am done wasting my time trying to justify all your stupid comments about a person who you didnt know! QUIT wasting your time and move on to another topic unless of course you are the supporters !!!!! and friends!!!!!! RIP PETE!!!!!!

dont know this guy or the band..to post 26.. what ur saying is rather 1 sided and wrong.. its a lose lose situation.. may he be a live and the child turn out 2 be sumthing nasty or whatever. but do u know what a 5 year old is thinking, u sound like u know it all =S but u dont.. who cares if he has other people around 2 look after him? hes lost his dad.. and at 5 is a very vulnerable stage.. and could effect him later.. so you know, agree or dissagree, this looks like the outcome, and its a sad case

i am a child psychologist. it's a long story why i am even here, but i felt compelled to reply to this post.
first of all, a five year old child is quite young to have vivid memories if there is no trauma involved to their personal being. second, those closest to him should stay vigilant to any warning signs of behavioral regression. if these become evident, he will need therapy. the mother should definitely seek counseling to help not only herself, but learn ways to guide her child through the grieving process.
as for the person (i use that term loosely) that posted about this child seeing the death of his father, and how that would be funny... get help! NOW!! there is nothing so disturbing as a person with no compassion.
may God bless this family and help them through a difficult time.
