SHOCK DEATH OF INSPIRATIONAL GERMAN ROCK LEGEND

 

Press review

 

“FLORIAN FRICKE died on December 2001 at his home following the result of a stroke suffered just before Christmas.

Florian and his band Popol Vuh (the name was taken from that of the sacred book of the ancient Mayan Quiche Indians) first came to prominence during the early seventies when Florian recorded the first ever experimental album built around the MOOG SYNTHESIZER entitled “Affenstunde” (The Hour Of The Monkeys). The transcendental, visionary music of Florian Fricke will survive him for generations to come. The Kraut Rock movement, those who appreciate New Age music, anyone who likes great music have lost a true legend.”

 

His music has changed my life forever…Florian genius remains eternal.

I don't know his work with Popol but he was surely a man who deserves great respect from all progsters. RIP, Florian.
