Star Industry bassist Stijn Kuipers is no more - R.I.P.

(Photo as posted by Star Industry on Facebook) Very, very sad news has reached us from the Belgian gothic act Star Industry as the band announced the sudden death of bass player Stijn Kuipers in a Facebook update. In a reaction the band asks to respect all peace and serenity.

Stijn “Stign” Kuijpers (born in 1969) was one of the founding members of the band when they formed in 1996.

Our sincere condolences to the band, his friends and family. Rest in peace Stijn.



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
