Never heard of him. What's his claim to fame?

I don't click on strange links, sorry. I'll just have to google him.

OK, I just did.

Edgar Froese, founding member and keyboardist of Tangerine Dream.

I HATE Tangerine Dream music. They ruined film scores, as far as I'm concerned.

BLAH!!!!!!!

At least they are better than Bernard Goldsmith and Jerry Herrmann.

AND ANOTHER THING:

Congratulations with coming here and pissing on a celebratory thread.

Says a lot about you as a person, I suppose.

I'd love to read it ( although it seems the page count has been trimmed by at least 100 pages compared to the original announcements/updates a few years back ) but, the price is just ridiculously high. frown

Oh, dear. Dude, if you'd just done what you should have and stated who this person is in your first post, instead of lazily just posting a link, I would have read, realized I had no interest, and ignored it. But, no. Even when I asked who he was, you had to be rude with a "Geeez." Perhaps there's a lesson here on how to start a celebratory thread?

Says a lot about you, sir.

Reminds me of your reply to the Simon & Garfunkel thread years back which was well underway when you wrote:

Simon and who?

Guess that says a lot about you as a person, doesn't it? Yes, it does.

And no, I'm not buying the Edgar Cayce--or whatever his fuckin' name is--biography. And neither should you.

Geez, what a joke you are. I actually thought you had a certain depth and intelligence re your posts on Joy Division and New Order, but looks like I was dead wrong.

It's a bit expensive is it not? €70!! I'd be expecting a coffee table style, glossy hardback for that money.

This thread is a disaster, but I actually feel sorry for the sod who started it, so this is some friendly advice for him.

Reboot it.

Start a new thread on the same subject, change the heading somewhat, and write a more friendly, inviting first post. Let this thread sink, as it quickly will, into the obscurity it so richly deserves. Then you can celebrate Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream as you originally intended with as many others that might care to join in.

And I can assure you, I for one will be nowhere in sight.

Now let's see if the git takes the advice.

I'm not buying the autobiography yet, as I still have a lot of Tangerine Dream to explore -- musically (I've heard a lot, but still missing a lot; they were so prolific).

Did he write this up untill the day he died, or is it an "older" work?

What I DO want to see, though, is this recent documentary:

(PS. Don't let the old nincompoops here bother you. Just ignore!)

What's up your ass? "Ruined film scores"? Yeah, right. Like everything Waxman, Hermann, Rota, etc. have done is SO awesome.

You're just a synth hater or what? roll eyes

€70?! That's almost US$85, excluding shipping, which will likely be €20-€50 (US$25-US$60) outside of Germany! Even if I was interested in buying I wouldn't pay that kind of dough for a music bio. But then I see that it's a self-published vanity edition, which explains the inflated price. Pass.

Well, yeah, I am a synth hater, at least when it sounds synthy. What's up your ass that you got a problem with that?

But, I didn't put it right. What I meant to say was that Tangerine Dream was one of the worst things that ever happened to film scores.

I hope that makes you feel better. roll eyes

Yes, he wrote it until the day he died. His wife has done the rest.

I saw the german documentary without subtitles. It was good, but had too much from the 70s compared to the other decades.

I know, ignoring those losers are the best, but it's kind of hard when they show up here brimming with ignorance and cluelessness. :-D
