Rewat "Ter" Buddhinan ( เรวัต พุทธินันทน์)  was a Thai rock and roll pioneer in the 1980 and 1990's - and died in 1996, at the age of 48.

He also founded GMM Grammy Entertainment.

Info at:    http://www.nationmul...m-30204388.html  and  http://en.wikipedia....Rewat_Buddhinan

Brief clip of him and his band performing in October 1986:    

What I am trying figure out is how he died.   That information seems to be buried - which suggests to me that one of three things happened:

1.  Drug overdose
2.  Murder
3.  Suicide

Does anyone who goes back that far recall the circumstances of this guy's final curtain call?

Thanks,
SS

The Impossibles were a big name when I arrived in Thailand in 1973. Their music is still played on the raio now and then, and I was delighted to hear one of their songs when I was riding in a taxi the other day. The driver was impressed that I knew them. He was invited to join The Impossibles and toured the US and Europe with them.

The Thai Wikipedia says he went to St. Gabriel Boys school, followed by Thammasat University, which means he had to have been quite intelligent and his family had a bit of money. It also says he was stricken with cancer and went to the USA to seek treatment. It was unsuccessful, and he died of it at age 48. Wikipedia says he had a royally sponsored funeral.
