Natasha Shneider was in a band with a friend of mine and I wanted to pass along my condolences about this wonderfully talented woman.

Queens of the Stone Age pay tribute to Natasha Shneider

Natasha Shneider was a multi-talented Russia-born musician known as the keyboardist/vocalist/bassist in the groundbreaking rock group Eleven. She, along with partner and band mate Alain Johannes, played in and toured with Queens of the Stone Age for 2005 release Lullabies to Paralyze. Shneider also had a major part on Chris Cornell's (Soundgarden) 1999 solo album, Euphoria Morning.

On Wednesday, July 2, the 52-year-old lost her battle with cancer.

Shneider also acted in two feature films, playing the roles of Russian cosmonaut Irina Yakunina in "2010" (1984), and former Polish exchange student Wanda Yakubovska in the film "Spiker" (1986), as well as minor roles in the TV shows "Miami Vice" and "Hill Street Blues." She also wrote and performed her own song, "Who's in Control", for the 2004 action film, "Catwoman" and contributed harpsichord to the 2008 "Louis XIV" track "Guilt By Association".

Former band mate and friend Troy Van Leeuwen (A Perfect Circle, QOTSA, Failure) said "She was a brilliant, beautiful, and ballsy woman who will be missed deeply by all those who knew her. Send your loving thoughts her way in the universe. "
