One of the most influential drummers of all time. RIP.

Aw fuck, that’s sad news. RIP.

Well that sucks. Isn’t there a story that someone in the same rehearsal space as Can once complained because they’d left a drum machine on all day. Only they hadn’t - it was Jaki pounding the drums for hours on end.

:cry:

When i get home im whacking out Halleluwah bloody loud. Rip

Been rinsing ‘Tago Mago’ and ‘Ege Bamyasi’ since last night. Might have to move on to ‘Future Days’ next.

Nice little piece about his work outside of Can

Really got into Can last year. Bought Tago Mago years ago but never really spent enough time with it.
What a band and he really was a special drummer - RIP.
Gonna listen to Can exclusively for the rest of the week, absolutely love Ege Bamyasi.

finally listened to the whole Lost Tapes this week, some real hidden gems in there too. this one especially:

The phew record is really great for anyone who likes can

This song is UTTER FILTH.

I have to admit there was a fair bit on that list that I needed to check out!

Listened to Monster Music for the first time in ages on my journey to work after hearing the news yesterday.
