It is sad to confirm that Holger passed away yesterday, in his home, the old CAN studio in Weilerswist.
This is another great personal lost to me on my music in life map. The pain is huge. It is like loosing the member of the family to me. I did feel the same twice in life so far. First when Miles Davis left, and recently after Charlie Haden’s departure. All of them helped me to find the Beauty in life and their music guided me all through and do continue so. Many great musicians left us this year and their importance is indisputable. This introduction then is to make it vivid how much those three were particularly important to myself.
