Founding Rough Silk Guitarist Dies
Singer Ferdy Doernberg of the German epic/melodic metallers ROUGH SILK has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"Unfortunately I have some very sad news. Hilmer Staacke, the original guitar player of ROUGH SILK died yesterday He had asthma from birth and unfortunately didn't survive the last episode. I don't know any details yet. Ralf [Schwertner, ex-bassist] just called me and informed me about Hilmer's death.
"I'm in L.A. at the moment and ironically playing four shows with Hilmer's favorite guitar player, Warren DeMartini from RATT. I'm shocked at the moment and really don't know what to write. Hilmer, Ralf and I went to school together and founded ROUGH SILK. Hilmer leaves his wife and his four-year-old daughter behind.
"I'll be back in Germany on Monday and write some more news then."
