Music expert, publicist and radio show host Vojtěch Lindaur, contributing writer to publications such as iDnes or Revolver Revue, editor-in-chief of Rock & Pop and the man who snuck 1960/1970s icon and singer Nico into Czechoslovakia in 1985 for an illegal concert in defiance of the communist authorities, has died following a long illness. He was 60 years old. The news was announced by Radio Beat, where he was employed.
On Facebook, his colleagues at Radio Beat wrote that they had lost a close friend who would be dearly missed.
Besides writing, Lindaur produced several albums over the course of his career and had a key role in shaping the Czech TV documentary series Bigbít about the music scene, including "underground" bands, in the former Czechoslovakia.
