Summary By the time The Fall released 'I am Damo Suzuki' in the mid-1980s, the elusive legend to which the song paid tribute had returned to music. Since making his name as the vocalist of the great German band Can, Kenji 'Damo' Suzuki has united a vast range of musicians across the globe through the Damo Suzuki Band and Damo Suzuki's Network. Now in his seventh decade, Damo is as contemporary a figure as ever. I am Damo Suzuki encompasses his personal travelogue, his spiritual journey and the life-force that has allowed him to twice rise above life-threatening illness. Paul Woods' narrative--drawing on interviews with Suzuki himself, family members, bandmates and friends--evokes the decades-long odyssey of a musical enigma.
