GOODBYE TO GRAVITY Drummer Dies

GOODBYE TO GRAVITY drummer Bogdan Lavinius died earlier today (Sunday, November 8) while he was being transported to a hospital in Zurich, Switzerland by plane, increasing the death toll of the October 30 Bucharest nightclub fire to 45.

GOODBYE TO GRAVITY guitarists Vlad Telea and Mihai Alexandru were among the 26 people who were killed the day of the fire, with while singer Andrei Galut and bass player Alex Pascu were hospitalized with burns and injuries from smoke inhalation.

Galut has already been transferred to a treatment center in the Netherlands, while Pascu‘s family was trying to get him to a hospital abroad earlier today.

Lavinius suffered suffered a cardiac arrest during the flight to Switzerland, and the medical staff performed resuscitation manoeuvres on him for 70 minutes.

At the time of the drummer’s death, the plane transporting him was on its way back to Romania because his condition had worsened.

The concert was supposed to be a record-release party for GOODBYE TO GRAVITY‘s new album, “Mantras Of War“.

The Station nightclub fire in that killed 100 people in West Warwick, Rhode Island, in 2003 during a GREAT WHITE concert was also blamed on pyrotechnics igniting foam used for soundproofing.

GOODBYE TO GRAVITY started as an unexpected mixture of former members from the heavy metal band THUNDERSTORM (which in their 10-plus years of activity opened for such heavyweights such as JUDAS PRIEST, MANOWAR, HELLOWEEN, RAGE and EVERGREY) and the winner of the 2008 national TV show “Megastar” (Romanian “American Idol” equivalent).
