On the front page of the official Pagan's Mind website, the following message reads:

"On the night of 24th of July, our dear friend Thorstein passed on.

After a long time of illness, things took a turn for the worse the last weeks.

Thorstein has been a respected member of the local musicenviroment since the mid-eighties, later nationwide and also outside ofnorwegian borders-all well deserved.

Well known for his skills with the guitar as well as his easy going personality - he was the kind of guy who got more and more friends for each gig he did.

Thorstein did two albums while he was in Pagan's Mind; "Infinity Divine" and "Celestial Entrance", and after parting with the band Thorstein quickly moved on and joined Smalltown Rockets.

Smalltown Rockets appeared on the norwegian KISS-tribute; "God's of Thunder", with the track "C'mon and Love Me".

The last couple of years Thorstein has handled the guitar-duties in the Mötley Crüe tribute-band Wild Side.
Wild Side also recorded some of their own material.

This is a sad, sad day and all our thoughts goes out to Ingvild and the rest of Thorsteins family,and also to his big network of friends and fans.

Rest in peace, dear friend.

We will always miss you, and we will never forget you."

Wow. That's tragic. I wonder what he suffered from? I was never a big Pagan's Mind fan, but it's never good to lose a musician.
