OMG --Edgar Froese!
« on: August 02, 2012, 12:54:17 PM »
Have you seen Edgar Froese lately? 68 years old.  He looks about 95.  There's a funny interview (2012) on youtube with him, the interviewer is a little girl about 12 years old!

yes, saw the interview. thought it was pretty cool. Edgar the Great lost alot of weight back in 2009. Flying back to Vienna after his band Tangerine Dream performed at an outdoor festival in Japan, he got some sort of bacterial infection and was sidelined for several months. Its been kept very quite on his health issues. During the Royal Albert Hall concert in 2010 he could hardly walk on stage or stand up for more than 5 minutes. He was very weak back then. But at his age playing for over 3 hours doesn't help either. I saw Edgar and the Dream 3 times this year. He is doing alot better. The Dream just finished off their 2012 Electric Mandarin Tour through Europe and N. America. Edgar is in good spirits when I talked to him. He is planning on taking the band to Australia and then over to Asia to finish off the Mandarin Tour in 2013.
