Death: Florian Schneider

Florian Schneider
Pioneering electronic musician Florian Schneider dies in Düsseldorf, after a battle with cancer. Along with Ralf Hütter, Schneider (and later, a rotating cast of collaborators) formed Kraftwerk, which created the template for electronic music sound design, groove, and mythologizing the future in the 1970-80s. Impacting the sound of everyone from Afrika Bambaataa to LCD Soundsystem, Schneider’s immense influence endures.
