HELIX mainman Brian Vollmer has filmed a new video in honor of the late guitarist Paul Hackman who died on July 5, 1992 in Merritt, British Columbia when the group's van rolled down a 40-foot embankment after a concert in Vancouver. Hackman was only 40. Check out Vollmer laying flowers at the accident site below:
The band recorded the song 'That Day Is Gonna Come', as a tribute to Hackman, and the video for the song featured unique Super 8 and video footage shot by Vollmer on the road over the years.
According to Wikipedia, recovering from the shock of his death, he took the songs he had recorded for his solo album, and released them as the next Helix record, It's A Business Doing Pleasure (released on Aquarius) in 1993.
