"Oh, crap, I forgot all about you. But I'm home, so we can talk," Peter "Fargo-Pedder" Knorn greets me a bit irritated on the other end of the phone connection in Hannover. "I was just listening out the bass lines of older songs. But I can get on with that later ..." Amazing, Mr. Knorn, who founded Fargo in 1973 with childhood friends, must be very organized, at least in his second job as a manager (for UFO, among others).
With "Fargo-Peterchens Mondfahrt" his second book has just been published.
"Initially I wanted to work on a different theme, but SPV, who distribute both our records and my books, didn't quite go along with that. But they were completely happy with the current manuscript." The humorous book about the rock'n'roll business as Fargo-Pedder got to know it over many decades with his bands Fargo and Victory and as a manager, is like the first publication "Until here and so on" (2016) whimsical reading material. "You as a journalist have to write roughly what we musicians tell you, you can summarise it a bit or put your opinion in - but as a book writer I get to write what I want. There's something about that!"
