Peter Rauhofer Eurythmics

Sadly today, Peter Rauhofer passed away.  He remixed 17 Again, which became a No. 1 hit on the US Dance Charts. 17 Again peaked at number twenty-seven on the UK Singles Chart. In the U.S., there was no single, but promotional-only remixes were issued for nightclubs. “17 Again” became the first Eurythmics song to hit number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Here’s one of the promo singles:

Today the music industry has lost one of it’s true heroes.

With a heavy heart I must now report that Peter Rauhofer has lost his battle with brain cancer.

He passed quietly today and is survived by his mother, Helga, who resides in Austria.

She will transport Peter back home to his final resting place there, but to all that knew Peter, his heart will always be in New York City.

It makes me sad, not only that I have lost a friend, but that the world has lost an amazing talent and that future generations will never get to understand the magic that Peter created night after night all over the world.

He is gone too soon but we will always have the vast body of music that Peter left for us.

Through his music, Peter will live forever. The brightest stars always burn out too soon. Peter, you were loved and you will be terribly missed. Goodbye my friend. Please rest in peace knowing that you have brought so much joy to so many of us. I ask that his true fans keep his legacy alive by sharing his music with anyone who may not have had the opportunity to experience it for themselves.
