Quote of the Week: Dinger, RIP

News spread this week of the passing in mid-March of Neu! and Kraftwerk musician Klaus Dinger, an early rock’n’roll proponent of man-machine interfaces. The following comment by Brian Eno was quoted frequently, perhaps because of its inclusion in the New York Times obituary (nytimes.com) written by Ben Sisario:

There were three great beats in the ’70s: Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat, James Brown’s funk and Klaus Dinger’s Neu! beat.
The entry at pitchforkmedia.com includes two Neu! videos from the early 1970s. More mourning at idolator.com, nme.com, and nedraggett.wordpress.com. Dinger was 61.
