WACKEN OPEN AIR has issued as follows:
After a long and severe illness our good friend Michael “Mike” Trengert sadly lost his fight. Mike was one of the organizers of the Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkeslbühl and also former European manager of Metal Blade Records. He loved and lived Heavy Metal. His credits as well as his positive and authentic appearance will never be forgotten.
The best ones die too young!
Our thoughts are with his family, Achim, Jagger and his friends.
Thomas, Holger & the W:O:A team
