Kraftwerk Fan Renames Himself After The Band
The man, from Florida, posted on the web his drive license with his name as Kraftwerk.
The man who is originally from Florida (his account web address lists the name David Sanborn, which could be his real name), posted a picture of his driver's licence on his Flickr page (pictured) with his name as Kraftwerk, followed by his address.
The man also posted a series of pictures of himself wearing the band's iconic red shirt and black tie from their 1978 'Man-Machine' album as he goes shopping, driving, eating and filling his car with petrol.
Kraftwerk are translating their visual shows into a '3D album', set to be released in late autumn on Blu-ray.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, original member Ralf Hutter said, "We translated our performances to 3D, and in surround sound, kind of like 3D sound."
He went on to say, "We’ve put a lot of work into all the images, transforming from our Kling Klang archives into 3D format and arranging it synchronised with the music, so it’s quite a lot of production".
The performances will include those from the band's most recent 3D tour, which travelled to venues including the Sydney Opera House, London’s Tate Modern and the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
In the autumn, they will kick off a North American tour which starts on the September 16 in Edmonton, Canada. It will also include shows in cities the band haven’t played since 1975, such as Portland, Austin and Kansas City.
