Thilo Rex R.I.P.
I received an email from a Stardust co-worker, Steffen Harder, on the passing of Thilo Rex, our old Potsdam boss. I thought I'd post it on the off chance that any of my ex Stardust colleagues visit the blog. He was a good man and will be missed, dying at the young age of 51. He was found in his apartment following two days' unanswered phonecalls. I didn't know him as well as the rest of the crew that stayed on during the financial difficulties the studio was going through at the time, but I will say that my memories of the time there have entertained buddies and colleagues in pubs, bars or wherever I've ended up since. He was one of the great characters I've come across in the industry since I began my career.
