Another bit of DP history passes on

It has come to our attention that producer Drafi Deutscher, one of the people who worked on Perfect Strangers (the recording that launched the reunion era) passed away on Jun 9th, at the age of 60. You can read his long and extensive biography (in German, please note) at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drafi_Deutscher

    I didn’t relaize, that Drafi Deutscher worked on “Perfect Strangers”.
    He was a very famous Singer and Songwriter in Germany, but for “Schlager” which means very simple popsongs, chansons.

    He lived his live with a lot of excesses (Sexual, drugs a.s.o…..), but some of his songs and a lot of songs he wrote for other where very famous. In the Sixties he had a great hit in Germany with “Marmor, Stein und Eisen bricht”, which had a real hard rockig touch.

    There is a little mistake in there – he died at the age of 60, not 50.

    Cheers
