RIP Damo Suzuki


One time lead singer of the rock group Can, Damo Suzuki, who also played guitar, died of cancer in Germany on February 9th he was 74. Born Kenji Suzuki on January 16, 1950, in Kobe Japan he relocated as a teenager to Europe, where he became a street musician. Can had been playing for two years and had already parted ways with original singer Malcolm Mooney when Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit discovered Suzuki singing outside a cafe in Munich. They convinced him to play a show with them that night, and he remained in Can until 1973 when he exited the band to marry his girlfriend, Elke Morsbach. Can composed the score for 1970’s “Deadlock” starring Mario Adorf, Anthony Dawson and Marquard Bohm.
