Rayna Foss-Rose (former bassist for Coal Chamber)
Rayna Foss was born on August 26, 1970 in Atlanta, Georgia. She first started playing bass at a friend’s party. His roommate had recently moved out and left the instrument behind. Rayna found it and her friend simply gave it to her.
Shortly thereafter Dez Fafara (whom she met through his then wife) asked Rayna to audition for a new band. Less than eight days later she was playing live with what was to become Coal Chamber.
Rayna played with the band on their first two albums and supporting tours. Shortly after their first album was released the band toured with Sevendust where she met drummer Morgan Rose. The two got along well and a romantic relationship ensued. Within a year they were married.
During the recording of the band’s second album Chamber Music Rayna became pregnant with their first child. This led to Nadja Peulen filling in on bass when Rayna was not able to play shows. Shortly after the completion of Dark Days, Rayna announced she was leaving Coal Chamber to raise her daughter. (via Wikipedia)
