RIP Arno. Belgium singer Arno died of pancreatic cancer on April 23, 2022. He was 72. Born on May 21, 1949 in Ostend, a Flemish coastal town to which he remained very attached and which he evokes in his songs, Arno Hintjens began his career with the rock group TC Matic in the 1980s, notably with the song " Putain, putain" ("Damn, damn, it's really good, we are still all Europeans") - a title recently taken up in duet with another Belgian, Stromae. It was in solo that he then revealed himself to a wider audience, thanks to songs like "My mother's eyes" or his cover of "Girls by the sea" by another Belgian, Adamo. The announcement of his illness came while he was promoting an album ("Santeboutique", released in September 2019). Arno wrote and sang the song “Land of Milk and Honey” in the 2009 animated film “Luke and Lucy: The Texas Rangers”.
