Cuban-born dance music artist Franky Gee, better-known to his European fans as “Captain Jack,” has died of a brain haemorrhage while in Spain, German media reported on Saturday. He was 43.
In a 10-year career that began in 1995, the former U.S. soldier and one-time German stock broker sold more than 7 million albums and singles, earning 19 gold and platinum discs with titles like “Drill Instructor” and “Soldier, Soldier.”

Gee was born in Cuba in 1962 as Francisco Gutierrez.

His parents emigrated to Miami when he was a child. He later joined the U.S. army, ending up in Germany, where he stayed from 1988 holding a variety of jobs before entering the music business.
