When I heard pass of Stefan Krachten, I myself was in coma for weeks.
I feel sad that I couldn’t show up for his last.
He left us on September 14th 2014.

Stefan Krachten was one of young musician who brought me back to make music again in 1983 after my first cancer operation.
He, the drummer invited me to join Dunkelziffer.
We played three years together, released 2 Vinyls, a single and a compact vinyl, also later a live CD.

Stefan with Goldman

We had many good times together.
Before he passed he played in Blue Shell, Cologne, I had opportunity to see him with Goldman around a few months ago.
He was long time not healable ill and last years most of times he had to spend on his bed wasn’t mobile.
Still he wasn’t weak, performed sometimes and produced his own and other artist recordings.

Stefan forever.
Sincere Condolences to his family and his loved ones.
