QuoteFrom the start, Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleben had suitedeach other better. They had come from prosperous families where there hadnever been a lack of money or, in particular, of culture or education. They hadelegant manners and had travelled widely in childhood. Karl Bartos and I, onthe other hand, came from the so-called middle class. Of course, we had alsobeen educated, particularly in relation to what is described as "emotional intelligence",although we also knew what it meant not to have any money sometimes, and what itwas like if someone needed emotional support. On top of that, we were youthful andtalented, and we stuck together for a long time because we had crucial things in commonand because we respected each other so much as we were. Instinctively, each of us sensedthat our special relationship would be capable of producing great things in the future.

Little did I know at that time of his earlier influence: that he brought Kraftwerk to the recording studio for the first time..." said Caduff speaking to The Wire.
