Remembering Falco

Johan Hölzel was born on the 19th February 1957 in Vienna, Austria, but he was better known under his stage name FALCO, which he took in tribute to the East German ski jumper Falko Weißflog. He had a short but successful music career in Austria and also abroad.  He died after a car accident on the 6th February 1998 and was buried on Vienna’s central cemetery (Zentralfriedhof).
