Super sad news to report tonight as Mercyful Fate/King Diamond bassist Timi Hansen has passed away at the age of 61 due to cancer
Friend and bandmate King Diamond reported the news this afternoon on his social feeds.
Hansen was the original bassist with Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate. He also followed King Diamond to his solo band of the same name and was the original bassist for the first four albums of that band as well.
He passed away exactly one week after his 61st birthday.
Horror Patch would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Timi Hansen’s family and friends at this time.
R.I.P. Timi “Grabber” Hansen born October 28, 1958 – died November 4, 2019
