Electronic Pioneer Klaus Schulze Turns 70.
To those of us who came up listening to electronic music in the 1970s, Klaus Schulze was an icon, a god of electronic magic. The German musician tapped directly into the growing electronic gestalt and for many, created the template of electronic music that many, to this day, are employing. His name has faded in recent decades, but back in the day, he was cited right alongside of Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and Can. He turns 70 on August 4th and we celebrate him today.
