Francisco "Captain Jack" Gutierrez has passed away

...was where I first read about the sad news.

To make a long story short, he passed away at 43 at a party in Spain and his son, also named Francisco, will be his successor.

Captain Jack's music may not have been exactly "eurobeat" per se, but it was certainly a close eurodance cousin and I think some of us enjoyed his music on the same wavelength as we enjoy eurobeat, today.

I will definately miss him very much. He passed away wearing his famed uniform and red cap and I hear he will also be buried in them, as per request of his will.

My two favourite songs of his were "The Race" and "Magic in You".

Goodbye Jack, you crazy son of a bitch.

I am most sad to hear this news... Captain Jack was one of my early favourites to listen to when I was starting to really get into the eurobeat / eurodance scene...

RIP Franky Gee

From Yahoo! News

BERLIN (Reuters) - Cuban-born dance music artist Franky Gee, better-known to his European fans as "Captain Jack," has died of a brain haemorrhage while in Spain, German media reported on Saturday. He was 43.

In a 10-year career that began in 1995, the former U.S. soldier and one-time German stock broker sold more than 7 million albums and singles, earning 19 gold and platinum discs with titles like "Drill Instructor" and "Soldier, Soldier."

AS a little contribution to his death. I think people out there should here his songs, about himself. ... B31Z0NTCBP

Captain Jack was great until about the 4th female singer and his last album (Music Instructor) was atrocious, but still it's sad he died...
