Unhappy Singer Haydain Neale of Jacksoul dies at 39

Wow, wayyyy too young.

By Lynn Saxberg

Haydain Neale, the Juno-winning singer-songwriter who was the creative force behind the Canadian R&B group Jacksoul, died of lung cancer on Sunday.

The 39-year-old’s death comes just over a week before the release of a new album that was to mark his return to the recording industry.

The popular Toronto-based singer had spent the last two years undergoing extensive rehabilitation and therapy after a serious traffic accident.

In August 2007, a car collided with his Vespa scooter, leaving Neale in a coma with head injuries.

His rehabilitation was slow but steady. Over the last six months, with the support of his wife Michaela, daughter Yasmin, and bandmates, Neale was able to finish production on the album he started almost three years ago.

“It takes me more time now, but I still orchestrate the room,” he said in a statement when the album’s completion was announced.
It was never revealed that the silky-voiced singer was diagnosed with lung cancer seven months ago.

“Through all these challenges, Haydain’s sense of humour and love of music were ever-present,” his wife said in a statement. “He constantly brightened the room with his singing and his smile. His joyful presence and beautiful voice will be missed by us all.”

That's fairly young for smoking related lung cancer. Maybe he had another cancer that spread.

Didn't know much of his music but there were a few of his songs I thought were really good!

That's a shame
