Any Kraftwerk fans out there? RIP Florian Schneider.

Recommended Posts

I just found out that Florian Schneider has passed from cancer at age 73. He left on April 21st and it was announced on May 6th. Kraftwerk has been a big influence on me since I first heard Autobahn. After that, I bought Computer World and Man Machine. I always thought they were a groundbreaking band. For those of you who don't know them and, those of you who do...

Damn it's getting crazy everybody's going. I was just talking the other day about - I'm the operator of my pocket calculator with my buddy. Now I'm going to have to listen to some KW.

They were the pioneers of electronic music. 

I have Autobahn.  I don't listen to it often. But every few years I throw it on and enjoy it. It's very relaxing for sure. And so different from most of the stuff I usually listen to.  I will have to listen to it tonight. Been a while.

Thanks for the music Florian. RIP

I listened to Pocket Calculator yesterday. 

It's simultaneously the worst and the best lyric ever written. 

I read his autobiography. Not really a fan, but it was a good read.
