Musician Miroslav Žbirka Died after Battling Health Problems


Unfortunately, a Slovak pop music singer and songwriter in Slovak, Czech, and English, Miroslav Žbirka passed away on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at the age of 69.

The singer’s wife, Katarína, confirmed Miroslav Zbirka’s cause of death as “complicated pneumonia.” The musician had been hospitalized one month ago on infusions. He wrote on his Facebook page: “Friends, I’ve been caught up in some insidious bacillus. Send energy, I’ll need it.”

The singer had health problems back in 2017 when he suffered from pneumonia in London. He was being transported on a private plane sent to him by friends at that time.

Miroslav Žbirka was born in 1952 in Bratislava but lived in Prague for a long time. He was a founding member of the Modus group with Ján Lehotský and Marika Gombitová. They won the Golden Lyre together with the song “Smile” in 1977. Žbirka then started his own group Limit with multi-instrumentalist Lac Lučenič.

  • and Atlantis.

Miroslav Žbirka and Gombitová also played together in the musical “Don’t Take Our Princess” in 1981. Miroslav became one of the few singers who managed to defeat Karel Gott in the Golden Nightingale poll one year later.

He moderated the show Rhythmmick in the early 1990s, where many viewers watched foreign video clips for the first time in their lives. He was an admirer of The Beatles, met Paul McCartney in person, and recorded the CD Double Album at the legendary Abbey Road Studio.

Miroslav released a duet with the Czech singer Martha entitled What Hurts, It Hurts in 2001.
