Behind the myth
An episode from the series TOO YOUNG TO DIE
Falco was the most successful Austrian pop-rock musician and rapper of all time, the only artist whose language was German but yet scored a number one hit in the US.
Before he could celebrate his 41st birthday, in 1998, and achieve his plan for a comeback on the musical scene, he was hit by a bus while driving in the Dominican Republic. Among the causes involved, Falco appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and cocaine.
