Cuban-born dance music artist Franky Gee, better-known to his European fans as "Captain Jack," has died of a brain haemorrhage while in Spain, German media reported on Saturday. He was 43.
In a 10-year career that began in 1995, the former U.S. soldier and one-time German stock broker sold more than 7 million albums and singles, earning 19 gold and platinum discs with titles like "Drill Instructor" and "Soldier, Soldier."
He was easily my favorite artist on the DDR games. His music always made this fat white boy think he could dance. Rest in peace, Captain.
