On Saturday in Cleveland, Kraftwerk was awarded the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Early Influencer Award, along with Charlie Patton and Gil Scott-Heron.
“This diverse class of talented Inductees reflects the Rock Hall’s ongoing commitment to honor artists whose music created the sound of youth culture”, said John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation in a statement ahead of the weekend. “It will make for an unforgettable live celebration of music in October at this year’s Induction Ceremony in Cleveland.”
Earlier this year, on May 6, Kraftwerk co-founding member Florian Schneider died. He was 73 years old. Today, the band consists of co-founder Ralf Hütter, along with members Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert and Falk Grieffenhagen.
In 2020, like many groups, the band had to cancel its North American dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic, refunding patrons.
