Ray Morris was the lead singer in Six Feet Under and the original singer for Life Sentence. After roughly 1 year of playing shows (1984) with Life Sentence, Morris had to abruptly leave Chicago. He relocated to Atlanta and at that point, the band became a national touring unit. He would only play in Chicago 2 or 3 more times after that, under an assumed name. The band kicked him out of the band while on tour in 1986, leaving him on the side of the road in Kansas. He hitchhiked to the gig the following night in Norman, OK with the Descendents. He pleaded to be let back in the band, but the band refused. He had to be escorted out by security. He drifted to Orlando, Florida and would eventually be incarcerated for a couple of years on various charges of theft and fraud. He was released in the late 80's or early 90's but has not been heard from since. Some people close to him suspect he may be deceased.
