Kraftwerk: 'Die Roboter' (ZDF live, 1978)
The founding member Florian Schneider (b. 1947) has left Kraftwerk on 21 November 2008. The reason was not made public, but Pitchfork Media told last year about "Kraftwerk Drama: Alleged Beef With Kling Klang, Florian Schneider Missing From U.S. Tour". The remaining members of Kraftwerk intend to continue touring at least for the time being, with gigs in South America, Mexico and Germany announced for March and April 2009.
