Biography

Ralf Hütter (born 20 August 1946 in Krefeld, Germany) is the lead singer, keyboardist, and reportedly “band leader” of Kraftwerk and is usually the one interviewed. His deep, noticeably accented tenor voice helped to set Kraftwerk apart from other musical groups.

An avid cyclist, Hütter was involved in a cycling accident in 1983, during the initial period of recording of the since abandoned album Techno Pop. [1] Only the single “Tour de France” and demos of “Techno Pop” and “Sex Object” would find their way into bootleg releases after this accident. He was in the hospital for many months, and Karl Bartos stated the first thing he said when he awoke from his coma was “Where is my bicycle?”.
