DDE-Eskil hit a moose – for the fifth time

DDE-Eskil hit a moose – for the fifth time

– I suffer from neck and shoulder pain, and I suffer from constant headaches, concentration, and difficulties in reading. “Obviously I'm worried,” says Eskil Brondbo (54).

DDE's drummer has had a few hits over the years. After four collisions with moose, he thought his share of accidents was full — but it wasn't at the time. This winter it happened again!

Violent clash

When Eskil woke up on January 26, he was looking forward to celebrating his birthday, but first he had to go to the office. Head to Namsos.

Two kilometers later, in the 80 area of ​​Skage in Overhalla, I had a great success.

– Fairly heavy bleeding


– It's a miracle that things went well, says Eskil.

The collision was violent. The car's hood was completely compressed, the windshield was shattered and the roof was badly dented – especially on the passenger side.

– If there had been two of us in the car, the collision would likely have ended in death, Eskil believes.

– When the car collided, the moose flipped over the car. That she didn't make it to the cabin is a miracle. It was so close that I left a moose hair in my mouth. When I was able to stop, the moose was behind me in the road.

“Once again I had an angelic guard,” says Eskil.

This is not the first time he has been involved in a collision with a deer.

The King of the Jungle had at least five unpleasant encounters – one incident occurred when Bjarne Brondbo (59) was also in the car.

Eskel's older brother is only able to use gallows humor after the accident, which could have ended much worse.

– It's good to indirectly contribute to the green transition – the doors and the back of the debris can be reused, Big Brother jokes. In addition to music, they run a family business focused on recycling auto parts.

Bjarne holds his little brother tight – knowing he was close this time too.

I fall into a coma

Eskil was also involved in a severe crash in 1988. At that time, the driver may have been asleep at the wheel, and the passenger car crashed at high speed into a rock wall. It was worse for Eskel, who suffered a fractured skull and internal bleeding.

- Very disappointed

– Very disappointed


– Fortunately, there was an ambulance in line behind the scene which quickly requested a helicopter that took me to St. Olav Hospital in Trondheim. I was put there in an artificial coma,” Eskel says.

– A week later I was so healthy that I was discharged from the hospital. Since then I have been suffering from headaches and neck pain. After colliding with a moose in January, the pain intensified. “I don’t like it very much,” Eskil tells Se og Hør.

But the drummer of the popular band grits his teeth. Because soon he and his folk bandmates will embark on a ferocious summer tour — and then a national fall tour, which they've dubbed “Greatest Hits,” awaits. And he should do it too!

– The show must go on, Eskil smiles bravely, who knew that being a professional drummer required good physical fitness.

-The fact that I train at least three times a week and that I am in good shape probably helps me recover faster. But neck treatment by a physical therapist is also a priority for the future, he says.
