ProgPower Europe, In Memory Of Mikko Laine

From the folks at Progpower Europe

As you probably all know, Mikko Laine, gitarist of Sole Remedy from Finland, died in a terrible accident right after the last day of ProgPower Europe 2011. To say a final goodbye to Mikko, we invite you this Saturday October 29 at the basement of JC Sjiwa, Baarlo, The Netherlands. We think it will be good to come together one more time to share all our feelings about the disastrous accident. We will play the full Apoptosis album and a couple of new songs already recorded by the band together with Mikko. You also will be able to sign a condoleance book and a condoleance card that we will send to Mikko’s family. This way you will be able to personally say goodby to Mikko. And we will present a commemorative stone, that will get a permanent place outside Sjiwa, close to where the accident happened. This way Mikko will be with us forever.

The basement of Sjiwa will open at 20.00 hrs, coffee and thee will be served for free, but the bar is also already open at 20.00 hrs. Around 21.30 hrs we will present the commemorative stone. Right after this we will play the Apoptosis album in its full length and most likely play a few new songs the band recently recorded. The basement of Sjiwa will be open until 02.00 hrs. The address of Sjiwa is Hoogstraat 1a, 5991XC, Baarlo (L), The Netherlands.

For those of you who are not able to attend or who live to far away, please sign the online condoleance. We will print all condoleances and together with the condoleance book we will send everything to Mikko’s family. Go to to sign the online condoleance.

Early november we send a newsletter about ProgPower Europe 2012, we have decided to continue but first want to say a final goodbye to Mikko.
