Here are a couple of articles on Ole, both in Danish:

From Raz' biography:

As G N' R's success grew, Ole became more and more downbeat. Up until that point in time, he never said a word to me about departing the band. But on the ride home from Long Beach [September 1987], he was totally bummed when asking, "Why am I not in that band? I should be getting my dick sucked in twenty different languages right now."

I told him, "Dude, you made a decision you thought best at the time. It is what it is."

He strongly disagreed that he had decided anything. Although tired of Tracii's shit, he wanted Axl as his singer enough to put up with him. Ole had no idea his tenure was even slightly in jeopardy. Then, within days of getting booted from G N' R, Ole went to Wilpower Studios to grab his gear and ran into Slash, who at the time played in Black Sheep. Soon he, Slash, and Steven were jamming together semi-regularly. Right up until those two joined G N' R. So in Ole's mind, he had actually lost out twice.

Within a year of our ride from the Cult show, G N' R was the biggest band in the world, and not too long after that, some piece of shit stole Ole's beloved Music Man bass. It was the absolute last straw for his mental state, and he returned to Denmark suffering from a deep depression. Through the miracles of ancient brew science and classic movie endings, Ole managed to fully cure his sadness with some late-night swim therapy

That last line from the above quote is quite heavy. Ole was a big friend of Raz.
