from the Faust main site recent news:

 
Uwe Nettelbeck, founder and mentor of Faust, died on January 17th. Jean-Hervé Peron made this statement about the passing of the man who first formed and inspired Faust and was a key creative force behind the group in their early years;

"Besides being a sharp-witted but yet charming and loving husband, father and grandfather, he was an outstanding cook, a writer who always generated deep emotions and interest, and a genius, selfless music producer. Thank you Uwe for all you have done for our music. Faust is your work, no doubt ! Your work will outlast all of us. May your soul rest in peace. My sincere sympathy to his family Petra, Anouchka, Sandra, Elisha and Elsa."

Faust founder Uwe Nettelbeck dies


Written by Staff   
Wednesday, 24 January 2007


Uwe Nettelbeck died on the 17th January 2007. As well as being a journalist, he also founded the legendary Faust in 1968, a year that marked the beginning of Germany's musical revolution and a decade of terrorism. Nettelbeck was right in the middle of it all. With Faust he produced the music, designed the album covers, including that iconic X-rayed fist raised in revolt, contributing to the overall Faust experience. Nettelbeck and Faust have been a huge influence on every generation of musicians that have followed, especially many of those hosted here on Brainwashed. Our heartfelt condolences are offered to his friends and family.

 

Jean-Hervé Péron posted the following message yesterday on his website, Art-Errorist:

" Uwe Nettelbeck died on january 17th.
besides being a sharp-witted but yet charming and loving husband/father/grandfather, he was an outstanding cook, a writer who always generated deep emotions and interest and a genius selfless music producer.
i thank you uwe for all you have done for our music. Faust is your work, no doubt.
Your work will outlast all of us.
may your soul rest in peace.
my sincere sympathy goes to petra, anouchka, sandra, elisha and elsa."

Further information about Nettelbeck and his work with Faust can be found at the Faust Pages site.

I just found this out and thought people here should know...

From www.faust-pages.com/:

22 Jan 2007: Uwe Nettelbeck Dies

Uwe Nettelbeck, founder and mentor of Faust, died on January 17th. Jean-Hervé Peron made this statement about the passing of the man who first formed and inspired Faust and was a key creative force behind the group in their early years;

Besides being a sharp-witted but yet charming and loving husband, father and grandfather, he was an outstanding cook, a writer who always generated deep emotions and interest, and a genius, selfless music producer. Thank you Uwe for all you have done for our music. Faust is your work, no doubt ! Your work will outlast all of us. May your soul rest in peace. My sincere sympathy to his family Petra, Anouchka, Sandra, Elisha and Elsa.

Many many members of the Faust List join me here to express their condolences:

  • Sad news. Please tell Uwe's family that there are a great number of people whom he never met, yet who have been touched, influenced, entertained, perpelexed, stimulated, and enriched by his work with Faust, and who are moved by the news of his passing....
  • Faust lives because of him, and I think all of our lives are changed in a profound way because of Uwe....
  • Uwe Nettelbeck... Ce nom magique... Merci pour le Clear et... le reste... On est pas prêts d'oublier... On prie pour toi...
  • JHP, please pass on the collective commiserations and condolences of everyone at the Kosmische Club to Uwe's family ...
  • Let this be a reminder to all of us to express love and appreciation to one another while the person is still alive to hear it!...

Joachim Irmler added:

In a way, he was too close to me, so I cannot really express my feelings at the moment. At times, it felt like he was a brother.

Asche auf mein Haupt!

Requiescat in pace!

Greatly enjoyed Faust.
The first band to introduce me to the avant garde.
Bought the first album on a whim...never looked back.
Thank You Uwe.
Here I'm shadowed by a dragon fig tree's fan
ringed by ants and musing over man.
