For me it was how badly the forum software worked in my computer. I had problems posting and the forum kept logging me out so I had to sign in all the time!

In 2015 when E.F. sadly changed his cosmic address I almost stopped listening to TD for a long time, but I am over that shock now and I have been listening to TD quite o lot. The Sessions series has been really nice imo.

Yes that constantly logging out fault is challenging to say the least.

Tangerine Dream and the fan base deserve a new forum and website.

Because TD lost on january 20th 2015 it's last founding member.

So TD is not TD anymore, cannot be TD anymore.

It's no only in the name Tangerine Dream ......
The soul is gone, the music of the past not.

Two reasons:

1. I lost interest in TD because reading Edgar's book made me dislike him. I won't go into the details, let's just say he was a different man that I imagined him to be (which is entirely my "problem", I'm aware of that, so please don't crucify me for being honest). I sold the book immediately after having read it.

2. I have grown tired of current electronic music, because in my mind it paints pictures of virtual/computer worlds, and not spiritual worlds. This includes current TD. In today's world there is virtuality everywhere, I don't want even more of that in the music I'm listening to. It gives me no relief entering the antiseptic audiopixel spaces of the quantum machine elves.

Anyway, the old music is still there, thankfully. Take care everyone.

About point 1 above, let's just say I understand what you mean. Edgar doesn't come across as particularly sympathetic.

This is the kind of interesting debate which could revive this forum?

Michael66,without going into details, I would be interested to hear your main reasons for not liking EF when it comes to the book.
In my view he is honest, detailed, poetic, but also sympathetic. He can be more direct than many, but that was well known, I think. I have never directly spoken to him, but I attended a few meet & greets after shows, and also attended a live interview session. He had humour and was very welcoming and friendly towards all the fans that were around. More than could be expected from an artist that has been in the business for 45 plus years.

In the book I found him rather harsh towards other people from record labels, fellow musicians, film directors and people from the establishment/government. He is incredibly sarcastic, and he seemed to have a rather negative look on people before he had met them.

He seemed to love Bowie and Dali though!

I'm sure he was totally different and friendly towards fans, and he is still my musical hero number 1.
