    1. That’s what Kraftwerk is at this point… just Ralf and some touring musicians playing music that is anywhere from 17 to 46 years old, on laptops and iPads.

      Kraftwerk has become a Kraftwerk tribute band, kinda.

      But I do believe there’s some musical poking of screens, not just playing back recordings.

        1. Agreed. They successfully built up a distinctive image in the old days when synth was not widely accessible to most people.

  1. My oldest son & I got the chance to see their 3D show here in Hong Kong last year. It was awesome; definitely worth going to see!!!

  2. Tribute band with just one original member.

    Really to call this band Kraftwerk is a rip off.

    Kraftwerk Musik is more accurate.

  3. On the 2004 video clip above there is obviously not much left of his voice – wonder what it sounds like now 15-16 years after…
