Formerly of Kraftwerk. A hugely influential musician, even if you’ve never heard of him.

Not many German pop musicians gain worldwide recognition. Here's one, and my hat is off to him as a great musician, inventor and un-pop star-like reclusive figure who let his art, and only his art, speak for him.

Had to look that one up. :) I've been watching a bit of Stormare in 'Swedish Dicks' which is sometimes amusing.
