Edgar Froese’s apartment

Edgar Froese (1944–2015) was a Ger­man musi­cian, best known as the founder of the influ­en­tial elec­tron­ic band Tan­ger­ine Dream.

Before mov­ing to the Hotel Ger­hus and lat­er set­tling into his own apart­ment at Haupt­straße 155, David Bowie briefly resided as a guest in Froe­se’s apart­ment at Schwäbis­che Straße 7, nes­tled with­in the tran­quil Bavar­i­an Quar­ter.

Edgar Froese from Tan­ger­ine Dream. A very nice guy. Edgar and his wife real­ly helped me when I was liv­ing in Berlin. I was going through a dif­fi­cult phase at that time, expe­ri­enc­ing immense pain. And they sup­port­ed me in get­ting off cocaine. Yes, both of them were very kind to me.
