R.I.P. Tom Hofwander a.k.a. Internal Dread

One of Sweden's most renowned producers and live sound engineers was tragically killed in an accident while on the Road (literally - he fell out of the tour bus on the highway) in Denmark with Veronica Maggio on the 13th of august.

I only met him once, great fellow and an important part of the swedish live sound and reggae scene.

Watch him in action: Kultiration - Never ending - YouTube

I can't stop wondering how this actually happened. What a way to go.

RIP brother!

I had to use Google to translate the article from Danish into English, but it seems like he opened the back door on the tour bus and fell out while they were driving down the highway.
They found him quite a while after he fell out because the bus driver had no idea the dorr was opened and that he was missing.

It says something about him being "smoked-out" so maybe he was trying to get fresh air.
