As posted by Nasty Idols: “On November 16:th last year we gathered on location in Malmö eager to shoot what was going to be the first of two videos presenting the new Nasty Idols members, Andy, Rikki, Zoak and Anton. We had an awesome day filming with Rainer Holmgren… and although Andy sadly left us just a few weeks later here It is. What was supposed to be a beginning now represents the end and last hoorah!  Rock’n roll, Andy It came out just the way you planned it.. of course.

Andy Pierce (real name: Anders Persson) of Swedish hard rockers NASTY IDOLS passed away on Thursday, December 5

December 8th, 2013

nasty_idols_live_kb_malmoe_8Vocalist Andy Pierce (real name: Anders Persson) of Swedish hard rockers NASTY IDOLS died on Thursday, December 5 after suffering a brain hemorrhage at the home of his girlfriend in Denmark. He was 45 years old.

“We, the band members, have been talking a lot and it is a shock,” NASTY IDOLS guitarist Peter Espinoza tells the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan. “It goes up and down. One second you’re not thinking about it, and then the next second, it hits you like a bomb. It’s terribly sad.”

He adds: “[Andy] was a very funny human being. We were always having minor quibbles at gig time. My hair is falling off, it happens to most people sooner or later, and he always said, ‘It’s cool that you’re going bald, but wouldn’t it be cooler with a baseball cap?’ We were always giving each other friendly jabs like that. He was a truly wonderful and funny person.”

Formed in Malmö in 1987 by Pierce and bassist Dick Qwarfort, NASTY IDOLS released their first single, “Don’t Walk From Love”, the following year. The band’s debut album, “Gigolos On Parole”, came out in 1989, earning them the status of one of the hottest new rock acts in Scandinavia. Their second album, “Cruel Intention”, was recorded in 1990 between gigs and tours just as the L.A sleaze/glam rock scene was at its peak. Following the release of “Cruel Intention” in 1991, NASTY IDOLS became icons in the genre and their music videos for “Cool Way Of Living”, “Can’t Get Ya’ Off My Mind” and “Trashed N’ Dirty” were in rotation on MTV’s “Headbangers Ball”.
