Kraftwerk's Florian Schneider (1947 - 2020)

My friend pulled out an LP from his collection and asked if I had heard of the German band KraftwerkRadio-Activity on the turntable. That's how it started.

"Die Menschmaschine" ("the human machine") co-founder Florian Schneider died a week ago, but the news was released yesterday: sad news.

While Kraftwerk, which translates to English as "power station", was powered by electronics, its effect on popular music is immense.
