that is really sad.
Florian must have his reasons. But it is the End .
/.... Kraftwerk to be Boney M like band with only 1 original member.... ? well I don't know.
and he is absolutely right about record industry. so sad but true. Imgaine, you need instruments, time, a year or 2 or 5 ! to live with some money to produce art. and then you want to sell it and get something you can live a month or so.
something like this happened with Deep Brazil project. Eric Mouquet says he is happy that people are buying his album but he even didn't sell 1000 copies ! how should a musician live without other income or past success (case of Jarre or Cretu or Vangelis)?
I even think that Florian may have started some kind of business like for example restaurant or technologies (latest examples are Jarre and MC)
or art need suffering and difficulties to be produced?
