O guitarrista Benjamin Curtis, do School of Seven Bells, morre aos 35 anos

Foi anunciada ontem (30/12) a morte do guitarrista Benjamin Curtis, integrante da banda nova-iorquina School of Seven Bells. Curtis, que foi diagnosticado com um tipo de câncer linfático no início deste ano, faleceu na noite do último domingo em Nova York, aos 35 anos de idade.

Músicos como Paul Banks (Interpol), Devendra Banhart e Albert Hammond Jr. (Strokes) ajudaram a levantar fundos para cobrir o tratamento de Curtis.

Antes de formar o School of Seven Bells em 2007 com as irmãs Alejandra e Claudia Deheza (que deixou o grupo em 2010), Benjamin Curtis foi integrante de diversas bandas, incluindo The Secret Machines.

School of Seven Bells lançou três álbuns: 'Alpinisms' (2008), 'Disconnect from Desire' (2010) e 'Ghostory' (2012).
