RIP Crest

category: general [glöplog]
Crest is dead. He's commited suicide, probably by jumping from a rhine bridge in or near Cologne.

In the past, Crest has announced to commit suicide quite often, and for years lots of sceners tried their best to help him improve his failed life - sadly without success.

At Evoke last week, he had announced that he'd now finally put an end to it, but there wasn't anything anyone could have done about it - he pretty much was a lost case really.

This is a sad day for the scene - while our community is among the best when it comes to integration and giving a home to people, even our scene can't cure all problems.

Crest, rest in peace, and let's hope heaven for you will be a never-ending demoshow to enjoy.

Shit, that is really sad news!

It is said that those who talk about suicide are the least likely to go through with it, but this is obviously not the case. It makes you realise how fragile people can be.

I never knew him personally, but it's always sad to hear news like this. :(
Nothing more right than what scamp already said.
Rest in peace brother.

A really sad message, and even though I didn't know Crest personally either, I have enjoyed his demo-shows at several parties.

May you rest i peace.

oh man, i was somehow some people who did understand his attitude.. He was somehow strange in some cases and I could beat me for ignoring him at evoke. Hope his current state is much better than his loosy state here on earth. And if this is a bad joke, I hope he can read this.

That's really sad to hear! I saw him walk around at several parties and briefly exchanged words every now and again, he was weird but in general a good guy.

I'll remember him like this! Pimpin the demos 4 lyfe!!

your attitude wasn't mine, and i failed to understand it. nevertheless, i hope you have found a better place to stay - a never-ending demoshow sounds perfectly suitable! rest in peace, crest!

http://crest.untergrund.net/life.html may shine a light on this.

He was the grumpy ol' man of the scene. RIP.
