Red Hot Chili Peppers star Flea is quite active on his official social media accounts in self-quarantine, and he’s sending new stuff almost every day of the week.

Today, Flea took to social media for a heartwrenching reason and mourned the founder of the most legendary electronic music bands of all time, Florian Schneider.

Florian founded Kraftwerk in 1970, and they became one of the most popular bands in Germany in a really short time. After 38 years, Florian chose to leave the band and began his solo career. Unfortunately, he passed from this world at the age of 73 yesterday.

As tons of fans went to comment section to share their condolences, Van Halen legend Sammy Hagar was one of the users who liked that sad post.

Here is what Flea wrote about Florian:

“Man, we are losing the hugely influential great ones. Rest In Peace, the great Florian Schneider. That music will put you in a trance, sent a million musicians in a new direction, (Bowie named a beautiful song after him for crying out loud!); Had a huge hand in the invention of hip hop, all while fearlessly navigating and pioneering the inventive avante-garde in post war Germany.

What a spirit! Radioactivity is in the air for you and me! Kraftwerk forever! I’m grateful for you, Florian! ❤️❤️❤️”

An Instagram user named yesthatjian commented:

Dancing to Trans Europe Express was a MAJOR tradition for black students at The Ohio State University when I was there. Some of the music he helped create/influence served as a soundtrack to various points in my life.”
