The emblematic British trip hop group Massive Attack announced this Tuesday the death of its guitarist Angelo Bruschini, who suffered from lung cancer, at 62 years old.
“Rest in peace, Angelo. A singularly brilliant and original talent,” Massive Attack writes on its official X account (formerly Twitter), adding that it is “impossible to quantify” his contribution to the group originating from the English city of Bristol.
Founded in the 1980s, Massive Attack had its greatest moment of glory in the 1990s with its albums ‘Mezzanine’ y ‘100th Windows’.
After having played in several bands, Angelo Bruschini joined Massive Attack in 1990helping to design the musical identity of the Bristol band.
Bruschini wrote on Facebook last summer: “The specialists at the hospital have already told me ‘good luck’ twice about my lung cancer“I think I’m screwed.”
