    Sorry to hear it. They were one of the *truly* great bands from the European mainland in the 70s, and among the 10-or-so sacred Kraut groups - IMHO.

    Rest in peace, Michael.

    Wow, totally missed this thread! Just a few days ago I spun Malesch, and was also reading a printout of an email Gunther sent to Peter Renfro when the band donated a ProgDay charity auction item that I won. A very interesting note.

    RIP "Fame"
