Nils Koppruch is dead
You can hear Nils Koppruch in the current Radio Goethe show with his colleague Gisbert zu Knyphausen. Both have recently released their first album together under the name "Kid Kopphausen". A couple of minutes ago I read on Spiegel Online, that Nils Koppruch was found dead in his Hamburg apartment. The former singer of the band Fink and later as a solo artist was able to bring the American Country and Folk sound straightforward, without frills but convincing to a sceptical German audience. His lyrics were heavy but always deep. Nils Koppruch was 48 years old.
