# Florian Schneider has died!

Posted 6th May
Kraftwek were the pioneers of electronic music and it's sad to hear one of their members has died today.

I went to see them live in Sheffield a few years ago.. awesome!
What year did you see the band?
He left in 2008.

Yes he did, but the group still tours. I think there is only Ralf Hutter left as the original member. I went 15th June 2017 to Sheffield City Hall.
I saw them in 1983. I'm old. Florian was definitely in the band then.
I saw them at tribal gathering can’t remember the year

To be fair if I'd have seen Kraftwerk at Tribal Gathering (1997) I think I'd have been so bang on one that I don't think I'd remember the year either.I don't mean not remembering what year it was they played, I mean just not remembering that year full stop.

Saying that, I still prefer the Haircut 100 version of Autobahn to the original. It was always crying out for jangly guitars and backing vocals.
