To say that Can was and still is an influential band would be a major understatement. Countless artists and musicians from very diverse backgrounds and styles can easily pinpoint some inspiration from the German kosmische band. So losing both Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit, each a founding member of the group, in one year has been a major blow to the creative community.
So please join me in remembering the geniuses of this vastly original group with some classic filmed performances:
Keith Hadad, the creator and manager of RCU, has been a contributing writer to Elmore Magazine and Thewaster.com and maintains a regular column, “Keith Hadad’s Choice,” in Blicker magazine. His writing has also appeared in the Smithsonian Folkways' Guest Blog and the Optical Sounds Fanzine.
