Croatian-Australia guitarist Zoran Romic died over the weekend after a one-year battle with cancer. He’s best known for playing with Melbourne group Chocolate Starfish in the early 90s. He is survived by his wife Linda and their two daughters. He was aged 47.
News.com.au reports that Romic was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma just over a year ago, just as the group had reconciled after Romic and lead singer Adam Thompson had frayed, leading to the groups break up in 1998.
There are plans to hold a tribute concert this October to honour Romic’s health battle, with bands such as Bad Loves, Boom Crash Opera and Pseudo Echo.
