Will drop speculation
– It is tragic, and now we ask for peace. We will not say anything more about the case, but go out with this, so that we avoid more speculation and rumors, says Nythun.

Dyvik Husby first became known as frontman and vocalist in the band Turboneger in the 1990s – then under the name Hank von Helvete. Over the years he was also known by other names such as Hertis and Hertugen, and he also had several film roles and was a writer.
Dyvik Husby was open about his time as a drug addict, that it eventually led to him having to give in to Turboneger if he was to manage to quit.
His international manager Mike Lynch tells VG that he was in shock and did not really let the news sink in when Boye Nythun called him and told him what had happened.
– He was simply the best frontman any rock band could ever dream of having on stage. He always managed to create a connection with the audience with his humor and special charm.
