Goodbye to Gravity’s Drummer Dies, Romanian Club Fire Death Toll Reaches 45
Bogdan Enache, drummer for the Romanian metalcore act Goodbye to Gravity — whose pyrotechnics caused last week’s deadly club fire — has passed away, thus raising the catastrophe’s death toll to 45. Enache died while being taken to Switzerland for burn treatment.
Enache is the third member of Goodbye to Gravity who was killed by the blaze, following guitarists Vlad Telea and Mihai Alexandru, both of whom died the night of the fire.
The fire at Colectiv has had massive repercussions for Romania — not only were those responsible for the club’s safety measures arrested, but the fire also caused the resignation of Romanian prime minister Victor Ponta, who left his post after outcries of corruption (to be fair, scandal and claims of malfeasance had dogged Ponta for some time, but this seems to be the straw that broke the camel’s back).
Our condolences go out to Enache’s family and friends, as well as to the loved ones of all those lost in this horrible tragedy.
We’ll let you know more as we hear it.
