Jaki Leibezeit was the founding drummer for the influential German avant-garde rock band, Can.  Initially performing free jazz during the early- to mid-’60s, Leibezeit moved more toward experimental rock when he co-founded Can in 1968.  Can incorporated elements of world music, psychedelic rock, jazz, and electronic, with Leibezeit providing the prominent drum beat along the way.  By doing so, Can helped build the foundation of Germany’s krautrock movement.  Over the years, they released several albums including two of their most popular, Tago Mago and Ege Bamyası. Outside of Can, Leibzeit collaborated with Jah Wobble, Depeche Mode and Brian Eno, to name a few.  Jaki Leibezeit was 78 when he died of pneumonia on January 22, 2017.

Conrad Schnitzler
1937 – August 4, 2011

Conrad Schnitzler was a German-born musician who became one of electronic music’s most influential pioneers.  As an early member of the great Tangerine Dream, Schnitzler helped launch what would become known as “krautock,” and in doing so, influenced such electronic based acts as Brian Eno, Radiohead, and everyone in between.  Following his short stint with Tangerine Dream, Schnitzel left to form Kluster, another experimental group that laid the foundation of what we now know as industrial music.  In more recent years, Schnitzler self-produced and self-distributed numerous CD-Rs of his recordings while collaborating with others.  He released over 100 recordings throughout his career, the latest being 00/830, just days before he passed away.  Conrad Schnitzler died of stomach cancer on August 4, 2011.
