Scompare prematuramente a 40 anni Robert “Strängen” Dahlqvist chitarrista per oltre dieci anni degli Hellacopters. Era entrato nella band svedese nel 1999 per rimanervi fino al 2008 anno dello split. Successivamente aveva fatto parte dei Thunder Express poi trasformati in Dundertåget. Qualche mese fa era tornato assieme a Björn Olsson (The Soundtrack of Our Lives) con il singolo ‘Bangatan‘.
It’s hard to find the words right now but it is with great sadness that we must announce that Robert “String” Dahlqvist is dead. In 10 years, we traveled around the world several laps together. Shared recreational vehicles and recording. Played at clubs and festivals. It is incredibly difficult to describe with words what the string has meant to us and how we would try it so we can’t explain how much he is missing us. Our thoughts go out to all the great memories we had together and especially to his family. Until we meet again.
