Turbonegro also commented:

“It is with immense sadness we received the tragic news that Hans-Erik ‘Hertis’ Dyvik Husby has passed away.

We are thankful for the times, the moments and the magic we shared with Hans-Erik in Turbonegro during the years 1993-2009.

As a charismatic frontman who equally channeled humor and vulnerability, Hans-Erik was crucial for the band’s appeal. He was a warm and big hearted human, a spiritually and intellectually seeking person who loved having a conversation with anyone.

We are proud of what we created together as rock brothers in Turbonegro — the music, the characters, our whole universe.

Hank Von Helvete remains an iconic figure in the history of Norwegian rock and popular culture, and also made a mark as a profile in the international rock ‘n’ roll community.

Actor, romantic and entertainer — through his life Hank left no doubt that he was a man for the stage, loving the spotlight and the room’s attention.

Our thoughts and hearts go to his family.

Rest In Peace.”
