Toronto – The Canadian rock band "Walk off the Earth", which landed an international hit in early 2012 with their cover song "Someone I Used to Know", is losing keyboarder and singer Mike Taylor. The music died a natural death at night on Sunday, the group said on Monday on their social channels.
"Mike had an unmatched love of life," the two-time family man said. The Canadians had recently announced a world tour. On New Year's Eve, they wanted to perform at Niagara Falls. First, nothing was known about a cancellation.
About seven years ago, the five musicians interpreted the song to Belgian-Australian songwriter Goyte, "Someone I Used to Know," and wrote it on the Internet. They played the song together in just one guitar. Singer Sarah Blackwood took over the body, the others sometimes pulled on the neck or knocked on the body clock. The YouTube clip has now received more than 185 million views. (APA / dpa)
