Sean Ryder has called for answers over the sudden death of his brother Paul aged 58 on July 15.
The musician was found dead last month just hours before the band were due to play at Sunderland’s Cubix festival. The circumstances of Paul’s death are unknown.
In an exclusive chat with MailOnline from his home in Manchester, Happy Monday frontman Shaun, 59, revealed that in the absence of answers he began to fixate on the Covid vaccine when Paul had a booster before his death.
Shawn’s comments are in sharp agreement with the verdict handed down by the coroner, who said Paul died of ischemic heart disease and diabetes.

Shaun said: ‘It’s a bit of a bummer for me – he’s a 50-something guy, he’s got a good bill of health, and he’s got a booster, here he flies and dies.’
‘We are waiting two weeks for the post-mortem.
‘I don’t think our baby noticed anything (horror stories about covid jabs) he just went and had his booster – I think it triggered something.’
Monday bassist Paul Ryder was found dead in his bed at 6am on Friday July 15, aged 58, at his home in Manchester by his mother Linda, just hours before playing the Cubics Festival in Sunderland.
Interview: In an exclusive chat with MailOnline from his home in Manchester, Shaun, 59, revealed that the lack of answers has led him to develop a Covid vaccine.
Why are vaccines important?
Vaccination is a simple, safe and effective way to protect against harmful diseases before people are exposed to them.
Immunizations protect not only individuals but also others in the community by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.
Research and testing is an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.
In Australia, vaccines must pass rigorous safety testing before being registered for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Vaccine approval can take up to 10 years.
Before vaccines are available to the public, large clinical trials test them on thousands of people.
Over the years, high-quality studies have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical data from nearly 1.5 million children worldwide has confirmed that vaccines do not cause autism.
People first became concerned about autism and vaccines in 1998 when the medical journal The Lancet published a paper. This paper claimed a link between the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism. Since then, scientists have completely discredited this paper. The Lancet retracted this in 2010 and printed an apology. The UK General Medical Council struck the author off the medical register for misconduct and dishonesty.

Sean said the family were still awaiting the results of the post-mortem but the coroner revealed ‘Paul died of ischemic heart disease and diabetes’.
Paul was staying at his mum’s house after traveling from his home in LA for the Sunderland gig on the day he got his Covid booster jab in the States – which left him with a blinding headache.
Shawn said when the ambulance arrived, emergency workers said he might have died from a blood clot or brain tumor, and that he would not get another booster shot.
Fears: Speaking exclusively to MailOnline from his home in Manchester, Happy Mondays frontman Shaun, 59, said he would no longer get any shocks after learning Paul had a booster just weeks before his death.
Various myths have been spread about Covid-19 vaccines, including jabs that change DNA, cause infertility or connect people to the Internet.
The Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine uses a piece of messenger RNA (mRNA) to instruct your body to mount an immune response against Covid-19.
Can vaccines make you sick?
Live vaccines, such as those given to protect against yellow fever, work by injecting a weakened but still live form of the virus into the body.
Its purpose is to train the body how to make the right antibodies to fight the virus, so that it can remember how to do so in the future.
However, if someone’s immune system is weakened – by cancer, pregnancy, HIV or age, for example – it may be unable to destroy even the weakened form of the virus.
If this happens, it is possible that the injected virus can survive, take hold and cause the infection it is intended to prevent.
If this happens the symptoms are usually milder than the actual illness.
People who have received the live vaccine may be able to transmit the disease to people with weakened immune systems, so they should be avoided after the jab.
Live vaccines given in the UK include rotavirus, MMR, flu (nasal only), measles, chickenpox, tuberculosis, yellow fever and typhoid (oral only). They are all proven effective and side effects are rare.

There is an important difference between mRNA and DNA.
DNA, which makes up our genetic code, is large, double-stranded and very long.
mRNA is a single-stranded copy of a small segment of DNA, which is often released to send instructions to other parts of the cell.
DNA is stored in the protected center of our cells – the nucleus. mRNA is quickly degraded by the body.
It never enters the nucleus, and cannot affect or combine with our DNA in any way to change our genetic code.
Instead, Covid-19 mRNA vaccines teach cells how to make proteins that trigger an immune response specific to Covid-19. Vaccines work with the body’s natural defenses to develop immunity.
Meanwhile, the theory that Covid-19 vaccines cause infertility is based on the unproven idea that one of the spike proteins in Covid-19 and the Syncytin-1 protein (which helps placenta development) are the same. They are not.
The Covid-19 vaccine, like other vaccines, works by training our bodies to develop antibodies to fight the virus that causes Covid-19, preventing future illnesses.
There is no evidence that antibodies made from the Covid-19 vaccine cause any problems during pregnancy, including the development of the placenta.
Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest that fertility problems are a side effect of any vaccine.
People who are trying to get pregnant now or plan to try in the future can get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available.
It has also been speculated that vaccines can give people Covid-19, as vaccines do not contain live virus.
Some of the side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine, such as fever and fatigue, can mimic the symptoms of Covid-19.
These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building a defense against the virus that causes COVID-19.
Cause of death: Shawn’s comments are in sharp contrast to the verdict handed down by the coroner, who said Paul died of ischemic heart disease and diabetes.
Paul has previously been very open about his addiction battles in the band’s early days and used heroin.
In the late 80s and early 90s, Paul struggled with heroin addiction.
He told The Mirror in 2019: ‘We couldn’t get Calpol for the kids. I drink a lot.’
In a candid interview in 2007, he said of his drug use: ‘It was wild. I was 18 and recording an album. I learned to read and write at school but my real education started on Monday.
Mourners: Happy Monday bassist Paul’s family, friends and former bandmates paid tribute to the star bassist and laid him at his funeral on Thursday. Shaun (pictured centre) helped carry the coffin into St Charles Church in Swinton, Manchester
When he died, Happy Monday paid tribute with a Facebook post: ‘The Ryder family and members of the Happy Monday band are deeply saddened and shocked by the passing of Paul Ryder this morning.
‘A true pioneer and legend. He will be forever missed. We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.’
Paul’s family have requested family flowers only and anyone wishing to make a donation in lieu of flowers in his memory can call the funeral home on (0161) 7947499.
All donations will be split between the Make a Wish Foundation and Chico’s Kickin’ Cancer – an organization originally set up to support Paul’s youngest son Chico, who battled cancer at age 11.
