“Farewell to the extraordinary Florian Schneider (1947-2020) of @kraftwerk – the man machine lives on through an astonishingly original back catalogue of inspirational music,” Scanner tweeted alongside a black-and-white photo of the electronic pioneer, while Midge Ure declared Schneider “way ahead of his time.”

While the German-born musician founded Kraftwerk in 1970 with collaborator Ralf Hütter, the group’s music would go on to inspire artists for decades, including the late David Bowie, who named instrumental track “V-2 Schneider” from his classic 1977 album “Heroes” after Schneider.

Quoting Florian Schneider would be a disservice to his legacy and the intent of his work. The music says it all. Every single note.
