Apparently Florian Schneider has left. Why did no one tell me ? das ist not gut ya.
So now it really is Ralf's solo project....
then apparently according to a close friend (this was all on wiki though so take it with a pinch of salt) he has now left the band.
Apparently there was no statement released by the band (not really unusual) so it probably just slipped under the radar.
On the subject of Kraftwerk, I tried to read "I Was A Robot" by Wolfgang Flür but gave up. Has anyone read it? is it worth sticking with?
Rather tedious book, I thought - a bit "look at me, I was a Drum-Machine Operator 2nd Class and was looked down on by the real members of the band but I'm great really".
they allude to flur liking the rock star lifestyle a little too much and thus resulting in his exit.
it was more like 'i did this in kraftwerk which reminds me of another time i was recording my new album time pie....'
still worth the read i thought.
In this article he is still in the band.. http://www.elsewhere.co.nz/absoluteelsewhere/1877/kraftwerks-ralf-hutter-interviewed-2008-the-werk-ethic/
Be a bummer if he has gone.
