His first few singles released in 1981, Ganz Wien and Der Kommissar both reference drug taking, which ultimately lead to his death. He crashed his car under the influence of alcohol and cocaine in 1998.
He is buried in the Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery) in his hometown Vienna. Zentralfriedhof is situated around 5 miles out of the centre Vienna and is accessible by a short tram ride. There are several florists near the still working cemetery if you wish to buy some flowers.
As well as Falco, the cemetery also contains the graves of Brahms, Beethoven, Schubert and a few of the Strauss family. Mozart also has a grand memorial, but is actually buried in another nearby cemetery. Many more of Austria's great and good are also buried in Zentralfriedhof. We stumbled upon Hedy Lamarr's (1930s/1940s actress) "The woman many critics and fans alike regard as the most beautiful ever to appear in films" says her IMDB bio.
Falco's grave does not disappoint. A large "Falco" emblazoned obelisk towers above a glass panel engraved with his song titles and CD covers. His mother lies next to him, and the grave seems well attended by devoted fans - with fresh flowers and candles burning away. A nice visit to pay our respects to the singer of one of the greatest pop songs of the 80s!
