Kraftwerk Frequently Asked Questions

The Kraftwerk FAQ »

About this homepage


This is not an official Kraftwerk site, this is just a fan page.

This 'Kraftwerk Frequently Asked Questions and answers' list was founded in 1994 by Kevin Busby. In 2004 I took over the editing and hosting. One year later, in 2005, the domain name '' was also given to me. Since then a lots of things have happened, the history is still undergoing a change. Nowadays, in the shadow of social(?) media, when the Internet is full of garbage, full of fake news and trolls, this 30-year time interval is a nice period for a simple website...
I hope this FAQ will be available forever as a free and accurate resource for the Kraftwerk fans all over the world.
