After playing in a school band with Michael Rother and Wolfgang Flür, later famous with Kraftwerk and Neu, he then became member of an other Düsseldorf (Germany) located band called "Streetmark" .
It was end of 1977 when Riechmann started working on his solo career.
The result was the LP "Wunderbar" which was released on SKY Records.
Unfortunately he did not experience the release.
In August 1978 Riechmann was killed - without any reason - by two drunk guys, who stabbed him to death.
