So sorry to have to say goodbye to my dearest and oldest friend – and partner in crime – Rupert Hine.
We shared so many wonderful journeys and adventures in the process of working with so many great artists and projects.
It has been a true privilege to have been so close to this charming, kind and creative soul with the most wicked sense of humour. More to follow….
Bye Bye Roopie – SWTx
Rupert Hine was born in Wimbledon, London in the year 1947. Details about his Funeral Plans and Obituary are still pending…
Hine originally began his in the early ‘60s career as half of the folk rock duo Rupert & David. They released only one single, a rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” before breaking up in 1965. The song featured a young Jimmy Page on guitar, years before he’d reach rock stardom in Led Zeppelin.
Throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, Hine continued to release material, both as a solo artist and as a member of the band Quantum Jump. The group’s 1979 single “The Lone Ranger” became an unexpected hit in the U.K., reaching No. 5 on the chart.
In a series of tweets, Alan Graham, the co-creator of OCL with Hine, remembered his creative partner as a “beautifully mad champion of creators.”
I’m not ready for this. We still need you…I need you…you beautifully mad champion of creators…you always wanted the best for us & you made us want to be better than we ever thought we could be. You always saw what was inside and brought it out. I’m better because of you… https://t.co/LYHRayPMI1 pic.twitter.com/ERaQxKkKM0
