Ο Sivert Høyem αποχαιρετά τον Νίκο Τριανταφυλλίδη

Ο Sivert Høyem αποχαιρέτησε με ένα ιδιαίτερο κείμενο, το οποίο ανήρτησε στο Facebook, τον πρόωρα χαμένο Νίκο Τριανταφυλλίδη. Ο σκηνοθέτης, που ήταν ο ιδρυτής και η ψυχή του αγαπημένου μας live stage Gagarin 205, έφυγε από τη ζωή σε ηλικία 49 ετών.

Ο σπουδαίος τραγουδιστής περιγράφει τον Τριανταφυλλίδη ως έναν βαθύ γνώστη του rock ‘n’ roll, μια αξιαγάπητη underground μορφή που προώθησε τους Madrugada και τον ίδιο στην Ελλάδα, με τις συναυλίες που έλαβαν χώρα στο Gagarin 205.

Ακολουθεί ολόκληρη η ανάρτηση του Sivert:

FOR NICHOLAS TRIANDAFYLLIDIS

Thinking about my friend Nicholas Triandafyllidis who passed away on Monday, only 49 years old. He was a film director and producer, club-owner, music promoter and lovable wild man, soft-spoken and kind, but with a savage laugh (feel free to add more things to the list).

Nicholas was Madrugada’s first Greek promoter. A connoisseur of rock’n roll, underground culture and anything noir, he would become our companion on many a post-show foray into the Athens night. Cool Nicholas in spotless black downing his Whisky Amaretto like a king, he was someone we were all immediately drawn to.

Our friendship was rooted in music and founded on our initial business relation, but it endured even as the band moved on. Gagarin 205, his club in Athens, hosted numerous Madrugada and Sivert gigs. A chat and a few drinks in his office, where posters bore witness of his exploits in underground cinema (his 2001 documentary on Screamin’ Jay Hawkins is a must see!), was a natural first stop on any visit. He always made you feel welcome and he always made you feel well.

Nicholas leaves behind a teenage daughter and the woman he has shared the last eight years of his life with. My heart goes out to those who were closest to him. Through his work and through the strength of his personality he reached far beyond the borders of his native country, and his absence will be felt by friends and colleagues in many corners of the world.

Goodnight my friend … we will miss you!
