Remembering Klaus Nomi

Brilliant final performance by German counter tenor Klaus Nomi, who died from AIDS August 6th 1983. Born in Immenstadt in 1944 as Klaus Sperber, his wide vocal range and an unusual, otherworldly stage persona made him unique. His stage name Nomi, is an allusion to the American SciFi magazine Omni and an anagram of the Latin word omni(s) (all, every). David Bowie discovered Nomi in 1978 and helped him sign with RCA records two years later.
