Kurt Demmler.

Kurt Demmler, born Kurt Abramowitz (12 September 1943 Posen – 3 February 2009 Berlin) was a German songwriter. He was a noted lyricist and songwriter for many German rock bands.

Some of his compositions, like “Come Into My Guitar Boat” and “Every Person Can Love Everyone”, were award-winning works.[1]

In 2009, Demmler was to stand trial for sexual abuse, stemming from accusations that he molested underage girls between 1995 and 1999 during trials for a female pop group.[1] The day of the trial, Demmler hanged himself in his jail cell.[1] He was 65.
