Daft Punk retires
Oh, golly! After 28 years of seriously influential music, Daft Punk is splitting.

quote:
Daft Punk, one of the most influential and popular groups to emerge in the past 30 years, have announced their retirement via a video titled “Epilogue” posted Monday morning. The duo’s longtime publicist, Kathryn Frazier, officially confirmed the split to Variety and declined to provide further details.

Love’em, but surprised has not happened before this. Even have their Christmas ornaments on the tree - kids are fans Wink. Seriously they were creative innovators in music over an incredible period of time - look past the robots an listen to their music over time.

Sad to see, but not surprised.

Well at least they are retiring in style, so they are "Doin' it Right".

Random Access Memories is widely regarded as their best work; however, I really love the Tron soundtrack. I wish they'd done full length versions of each track.

OK, I'll admit I am stuck in the seventies a lot but I never heard of these guys.
I believe you they must be important as the link #1 had 15M views.
Listened to some of the videos but also admit it isn't for me.
But congrats on a nice run - I guess? Eek

Daft Punk's roots come from the 70s. Georgio Moroder and also Nile Rogers of Chic fame were huge influences, as were the Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, MC5, Stooges and Elton John.
