Thomas Dinger was Klaus Dinger's younger brother. He was a member of the legendary Krautrock band La Düsseldorf and also worked on the third NEU! album. In 1982 he released his only solo album, imbued with the spirit of La Düsseldorf, yet more measured and melancholic, redolent of the music of Michael Rother or Wolfgang Riechmann. Thomas Dinger died in 2002. He was just 49 years of age.
