Yet another year has passed (how time flies).

Here is one of the final interviews conducted with him (in German):

I can't help thinking how tired and sad he looks.

In this interview, his shining charisma isn't seen anymore.

I met him on several occasions as musician and demonstrating the Manikin Memotron. He is missed!

Lovely shirt -- he was wearing it at the only Schallwelle barbecue I ever attended.

Was just playing his Colors of Life album twice yesterday! Excellent stuff, great vision and musical quality... sadly missed today.

Cherrs, ami

Saw Him in 2008 after TDs Concert in Eindhoven. He was unfortunately only in the audience Sad After the concert He went up on stage and stroked very gently the Mellotron (which, as i found later, was His own:) It was touching - i will never forget that moment. RIP Master!

I have most of his albums. Got to know his music for the first in 1989 on an IC sampler.

I spoke to him once during Satzvey Festival in 2005 where he presented new CDs. Pro Sequentia was one of them.

The good man, if I see his name on the net or CD in one go I think on Udo Hanten. Glad I played from both many times in my show, also their live performance in Belgium.

The combination of and collaboration with Udo Hanten seemed to have been an unlucky and fateful one -- after their performance at, I think, Superbooth in Berlin, Klaus refused to travel home with Udo in the same car. Telling from what I've heard, there must have been a lot of cuss words making the rounds.

Seems as if Klaus clashed with an ego slightly bigger than mine, and slightly harder to deal with.
