25 Jan 2012

We just learned with sadness the death of Gert Hof at the age of 60, on January 24, 2012, of cancer.

This is a great loss to Rammstein, as Gert Hof was a central pillar of the band tours since 1996, occupying the position of artistic director and designer of lights, fireworks and stage. Gert Hof is also the author of the only official biography of Rammstein published to date.

Gert Hof also enjoyed an extraordinary success by creating sound and light shows all over the world. His curriculum vitae is present on Gert-Hof.de.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and of course Rammstein who had with Gert more than a professional relationship.

Update (January 28):

A poem written by Till Lindemann, dedicated to his friend, has been posted on the website of Gert Hof. Here, you can find both german and english versions:
