Gert, from Malmö in Sweden, was a huge Quo fan who created one of the first independant Quo web sites at statusquo.com in the early 1990's, some of which was incorporated into the official site when it was launched in 1997.
He went on to help maintain and work on the official site and to moderate the Quo Message Board for a number of years, not an easy job, but one he did with fairness and a unique sense of humour!
Gert, a keen photographer, was well known to the band and to Quo fans, and was often seen at gigs taking photos for the Quo sites and Quo tour programmes.
Quo, their management and all at the official site would like to extend their deepest sympathies to Gert's wife Tina, his son Micke and other members of his family at this sad time. He will be greatly missed by us all.
