Tangerine Dream: Edgar Froese passes away.

Bianca Acquaye, wife of Tangerine Dream's founder Edgar Froese, has posted the following message:

Dear Friends,
This is the saddest time in my life…
I’m so sorry to tell you that on January 20th, Tuesday afternoon, Edgar Froese, my beloved husband and best friend, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away from the effects of a pulmonary embolism in Vienna.

I still can’t really believe this, it feels absolutely unreal. I’m so infinitely sad.

Jerome Froese, ex-Tangerine Dream and Edgar's son, has also posted the following:

Dear friends & colleagues, the Captain has left the ship ... I'm very sorry to inform you that my father Edgar Froese passed away on Tuesday afternoon (20th of January) in Vienna. And as you already know: Life plays no encores. Rest in peace Edgar, you will be sadly missed

Needless to say that K2S sends our deepest sympathies to Bianca, Jerome and the rest of the Tangerine Dream family. He was a truly remarkable man who had a massive effect on music, in all it's forms.
