This is very sad. I've enjoyed his weird frantic playing for a long time

That's a real shame. I thought his drumming was some of the most original and interesting I'd ever heard. Thanks for posting.

Apparently he started as a jazz drummer, but really got his own thing going in Can. Listen to Tago Mago, it's not very complicated stuff but played so well.

Still good to listen to after all this time. He was a unique voice...

I got the Tago Mago LP when it came out, and I still have it.
I liked his drumming very much, and he was a real inspiration at the time.
