Andy Parle, the former drummer for Space, collapsed and died while crossing the street in Liverpool Saturday night at 11:30 p.m. Passers-by rushed to his aid, and emergency services were called, though Parle was later pronounced dead at Royal Liverpool Hospital. He was 42. Local police said his death is unexplained, and that they aren't investigating any wrongdoing.

Parle quit Space in 1998 after recording some of the Liverpool band's biggest hits, including "Me And You Versus the World."
