Edgar Froese is dead!

Just read over on the Ambient Online forum that Edgar Froese, the founder and front-man of the legendary Tangerine Dream, died suddenly in Vienna last Tuesday (20th) as a result of a pulmonary embolism.

I've always been a huge fan of his band's work..as well as that of early fellow member, Klaus Schulze...both had a huge musical influence on me and the music I make. I get his passing mightn't mean a thing to a lot of people, but to me it's a great loss, as I'm sure it is to anyone else who was and still are into TD.

He saw that Timbre Wolf viddy.

Killed him. Autopsy will tell if it was from laughter.










I owe him part of my interest for music and his music greatly enhanced many hours of my life.

He was brilliant. R.I.P.

Very sad, but he leaves behind an enormous body of work that could take one a lifetime to fully explore.

Edgar leaves behind a huge discography and a deserved reputation as one of electronic music's greatest ever artists.
Sounds like a great show!
