Sole Remedy - Guitarist Dies In Accident


Mikko Laine, the 30-year-old guitarist of the Finnish progressive metal band Sole Remedy was killed in a traffic accident on October 2nd in the Dutch municipality of Baarlo — just hours after the band's performance at the ProgPower Europe festival. Here it is the official statement from the band: "Rest in peace Mikko 1981-2011. Mikko has died in a terrible accident while on tour at Netherlands."

According to a spokesperson for the Sjiwa youth center (where the concert took place) the accident occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. when Laine, who was sleeping next to a fence, was run over by a truck, which was loaded with the backline, instruments and other equipment, as the driver drove backwards and turned onto the road. The 50-year-old driver, a local man, didn't see Mikko, who died at the site.

At least he got to perform one last time, although I'm sure his friends and family would trade that in for another day with him. Shitty way to go too...
