Submission + - Boing, Boom Krash! Krafwerk disbanded!

VincenzoRomano writes: "As of 21 November 2008, Florian Schneider, one of the two original co-founders of the pioneering German electronic group Kraftwerk left, as reported on January 7th by the Side-Line online music magazine.
This in turn reported from the "well informed" Brazilian fan site Kraftwerk.TechnoPOP.COM.BR which dates the leaving back to April 27th 2008. The same (bad) piece of news has been very laconically reported by the German site Elekrtodaten documenting the group concert activity, as well as by a number of other news sites.
What's sure by now is that Florian was not showing up in live concerts since long time. No official announcement has been heard yet from either the Kraftwerk group or Herr Schneider himself or even by the EMI German music label publishing their works."

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
