It is a sad news to tell that our great drummer Herluf Hermansen died on Sunday the 5´th of April in the evening at 6 pm on a Hospital In Torshavn!

He has been bravely fighting against cancer for almost 2 years.

One of his biggest wishes was to meet John Lawton again because he got sick just 10 days before our first gig with John Lawton at the Jóansøkufestival in Faroe Islands in June 2007. He did everything to come with us to Granada – and he was really looking forward to… Continue

Hello, it was nice to see you again, even we did not talk too much this time. But your music is still great. What about having Heepvention2010 in Faroe Islands? We would be very interested with Imre to visit your home. :-)

I am very glad that I met Herluf in Granada. We had many long, good conversations on our hotel terrace - he was such a nice, wise, positive and sympathetic man and also a great drummer! We are very sad because of this and our (me and Sanna) deep condolences goes to all Herluf's family and friends everywhere.

I have no words really to express our sadness at the loss of Herluf except to say it was a pleasure to meet him at Hv2008, and that he was a very special and brave man. Please accept our condolences, and our thoughts are with you all.

We are very saddened by the news. We met Herluf in Spain and that makes it more difficult for us to believe what we read. Our sympaties go to his family and also to the Deiggj band, who where his second family. May he rest in peace and looks over us all heepsters from above. Joe and Conny from Malta.

My heart is sad as I find out the early passing of a great drummer, a fellow Heepster, and a terrific friend. I'm so glad I had the priviledge of meeting Herl in Spain last September and jamming with him. I will miss him and I wish his family the best. He will forever be in my memory, heart and my prayers. My deepest smpathy, Muzzy

So positive, always smiling, so much energy, just like a firework!
I have many good memories from the short periode of time at Heepvention

My wife Inger Mari and my son Bernt Otto send their greetings to all of you.
And take good care of each other!

Giving the strenght to Herluf's family and friends.
I believe that Herluf would say: "Keep on Heeping"
Now he can play with David and Gary.
