A fascinating summary of a human and musical life.,
By A Customer
This review is from: "Kraftwerk": I Was a Robot (Paperback)
my name is Zusannah Winebergh, and I am a fan of Kraftwerk and Wolfgang Flürs book 'I Was A Robot'. I found it very interesting how Wolfgang described his adveture of life and music - AND girls. This is a happy making biography of a human person, and thanks god not a book about synthesizer analysis....Wolfgangs charming and highly amusing love affairs which I - as a woman - liked very much too, I must confess. If men generally could only be that kind of man, wouw! The book is a clear description of the social differences in a band and resulting of this their inability for a together future. We learn a lot about Ralf and Florian, especially about their behaviour with their mates, their good educations from their family homes, about their lust of luxury and elegance and how they proceeded with music making and recording. And this is not only to be read between the lines! We also learn - especially in the last chapter - about the craddle of their sound and how others, like Christa Fast for instance, saw the pair in their musical beginning with her husband, Conny Plank.(very amusing her comparison to Andy Warhol) Read this book, I only can recommend it, and you will not put it out of your hands until you've finished it. Wolfgang is a nature talent and you also can learn from him - and his new music, Yamo, which is wonderful, I promise! This is something which will give you new happyness for life...
