The German band member’s agent John Seine confirmed his passing, just a day after Farrell performed in his homeland. The cause of his death has yet to be determined.
Farrell was known for his epic stage presence and dancing. Farrell and Boney M. rose to fame in the 1970s with hits like European smash “Hooray! Hooray! It’s A Holi-Holiday,” “Rivers of Babylon” and “Rasputin.”
