Profile
Holger Schüring, known professionally as Holger Czukay (born 24 March 1938 – 5 September 2017) was a German musician and producer. He is probably best known as a co-founder of the group Can. Czukay studied music under Karlheinz Stockhausen from 1963 to 1966, and was not involved in rock or popular music until exposed to The Beatles' psychedelic experiments. Taking up bass guitar, Czukay helped found Can in 1968, and stayed with the band until 1977, subsequently pursuing a solo career and working with a wide variety of other musicians in many genres.
