Post German musician / comedian Ingo Insterburg dead at 84

Don't know if people outside Germany are familiar with him and his band , but . .




https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingo_Insterburg

( there is no english wikipedia on him , hope you don't mind )

Insterburg was a musical genius . . He could play several instruments at one time . . .

Do not believe me ?

Check this . .




( hope the vid is available in y'all's respective countries , never can tell that from "here" , lol )

Apart from that he had some , well , amusing lyrics . .

His former band . .




lol , they were suckers for . . well . . 'unconventional' postures . .




lol

The group called 'Insterburg & Co' was dissolved in '79 though . .

Insterburg died aged 84 in October . .

Two things tie me to him and his group. .

First , they were a hilarious group ( have rarely witnessed such humour ) , second as it happens my personal last name ( on my ID ) happens to be Insterburg-Sykes . .

So , in a way , our last names are / were "similar" . .

Though I have to admit that for Ingo that wasn't even his real last name , he was just so tied to his birth place ( Insterburg , East-Prussia ,in the former German Ostgebieten ; today named Chernyakhovsk . .) , that he named himself after that town , lol , originally Ingo Wetzker . .

The fact that part of my personal last name also stems from that town I can only explain that one of my distant ancestors maybe stemmed from this region , we never really 'traced' our family record , lol . .


Farewell , Ingo . .

On a side note . .One shouldn't draw the conclusion from the fact that they all more or less belong to the "generation of '68" ( "Hippies") and from their 'wild rover'-style that they necessarily were 'left-wing' . .

They also have some politically incorrect songs . .

Such as . .




( don't know how much viewers understand German yet I think one gets the message of that song ANY WAY . .)

My favourite of theirs . .


( song in many languages )

I sincerley hope the vids are available in y'allz countries because this music really is worth checking . .

Farewell to one of Germany's biggest entertainers and namesake of mine . .

I might mention , concerning this memorial I did for Ingo , even at an “old age“ he still tried to revive ’Insterburg & Co’ . . lol

Even though the new set-up didn’t quite ’look the same’ . .

lol

We all get older . .

lol
Some have “their fun“ ’til an older age . . .

Truth be told, that stuff sounds a bit like American bluegrass.

Are you familiar with it?
