Falco’s grave is one of those most visited in group number 40.
The pop-singers real name was Johann Hölzl. His hit “Der Kommissar” got to the top of the European charts. In 1986 another hit-song of his- “Rock me Amadeus”- made it to the American charts. He was the first Austrian to accomplish this feat and the song remained at the top of the American charts 4 weeks long. On the 6th of February 1998, Hans (short for Johann) died in a car crash in his adopted homeland, the Dominican Republic. A blood test after the accident said that in his blood were large amounts of alcohol and drugs. There are those who claim that his death may have been a suicide, but onene thing remains certain though: the world lost a brilliant artist, who was a trend-setter of his time.
