He came from outer space to save the human race!
…and his name is Klaus Nomi!
For those of you have haven’t heard that name before let me give you a little background info:
Klaus Sperber was a German man who traveled to New York City in 1972 and began work as a pastry chef. He got involved in the art scene, and took singing lessons, but his singing style was said to have no place in modern music, despite criticism Klaus pressed on and began manifesting the now legendary character of Klaus Nomi!
Below is the first ever video I saw of Klaus, I found it on YouTube and it just blew my mind!
As I have a ‘knack’ for the truly bizarre and awe-inspiring!
