rene berg

René Berg played bass for Hanoi Rocks in 1985. He died on July 28, 2003 in Kent, England. He was 47. René also played with Soho Vultures and Idle Flowers, among others.This is a 2004 interview with Sami Yaffa, who was Hanoi’s previous bassist.

Q6. Last year saw us saying goodbye to another Hanoi Rocks alumnus with the passing of Rene Berg. He was in the band after you’d left but do you have any feelings or thoughts concerning his passing?

SY: Rene was an old friend, always a gentleman to me, I think it¹s terrible that another talented, beautiful human being was taken away way too early.
