Henrik Ostergaard, lead Singer for the band Dirty Looks and current FnA Recording Artist, passed away this morning, Thursday January 27th, 2011 at 9:18 a.m. The Erie County, Pennsylvania coroner stated that he had died of natural causes while under hospice care. The rock world will sadly mourn the loss of this 80’s hard rocker. Ostergaard, who was of Danish descent, lived in Erie, Pennsylvania. In 1985, Henrik started the band Dirty Looks. Three independent albums and an EP would soon follow, which led to Dirty Looks getting signed by Atlantic Records. Later in Henrik’s career, he would be signed to Sony Records and most recently FnA Records where he released a new album, I.C.U., in 2010. Ostergaard is survived by his 2 children Henrik Jr. and Elliot
Any current or former band members or fans who would like to have their condolences, thoughts or reflections on Henrik posted, please send to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
Hard Rock Hideout would like to offer our condolences to the Henrik Ostergaard’s family and friends. We are all Dirty Looks fans at HRH! It is a sad day in the hard rock community! Henrik will be will be greatly missed!
It is not very often when you see a big budget video, like Iron Maiden’s The Final Frontier. I don’t know what the band spent on this clip, but in my opinion, this video is spectacular. It is a mini Sci fi epic, that features every metalhead’s favorite Mascot, Eddie! Check it out below!
