The word went out around the booth - Florian's here! And indeed he was, the enigmatic member of legendary German Electronic Supergroup Kraftwerk was in the building – actually on the Superbooth no less.. Hilariously, Mr Schneider shares the name of the proprietor of Scheiders Buero (Berlin based synth store) – but they are not in fact related. Cue me, after being told that we cannot mention the "K" word – all sorts of bad legal business apparently, attempting to come up with a funny sketch with Schneiders Snr and Jnr on the spur of the moment. Result = not very funny But hey – I met that Florian from Kraftwerk...

I see Florian puts as much effort into interviews as he does with stage performances...

Florian Schneider, Living Legend in my view. A Fun sort of man with a good sense of humour and a terrific understanding of technology along with his Kraftwerk co-founder Ralf Hutter. Both who i would love to be friends with for real. How about it Florian & Ralf?? -
