The Fear Of The Unknown

The Fear Of The Unknown

I've been wondering all my life, why people hate people that they don't even know. Why do people fight each others, instead of clinging together and working with each others for a better living for everybody on this planet? In the end it all comes down to suspicion...

While I first thought, that the sad news about the death of Frankie Knuckles were a very bad-tasted April fool's joke, now the certitude is sinking in, that we have lost one of the very first true pioneers of electronic dance music (nope, I won't say "EDM"). Where...
