Svenska Nasty Idols sångare Andy Pierce (riktiga namn: Anders Persson) dog torsdagen den 5 december på grund av en hjärnblödning. Han blev 45år gammal.

Bandets gitarrist Peter Espinoza kommenterar: ”We, the band members, have been talking a lot and it is a shock. It goes up and down. One second you’re not thinking about it, and then the next second, it hits you like a bomb. It’s terribly sad.

Andy was a very funny human being. We were always having minor quibbles at gig time. My hair is falling off, it happens to most people sooner or later, and he always said, ’It’s cool that you’re going bald, but wouldn’t it be cooler with a baseball cap?’ We were always giving each other friendly jabs like that. He was a truly wonderful and funny person.”
