Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt R.I.P

Even if the following "news" are slightly late, Opeth wants to send their thoughts and condolences to the relatives and family of Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt who passed away on January 2, 63 years old. Rhino was one of the founding members of seminal heavy rock band Captain Beyond, who released 3 outstanding records between 1972 and 1977.

Mikael comments: "Well, what the hell!? Seems, like every other update on Opeth.com nowadays is about another sick or fallen hero. Captain Beyond was a highly influential band for Opeth. I have been a fan of theirs for many years now, and count myself lucky that I even got to see Rhino and Bobby (Caldwell, drums) perfrom live once. What a band! All that remains to be said is: Rhino, rest in peace. Your music will continue to inspire people for many years to come"
