    Yes, I played in a cover band back in 1989-90 in Germany and he was huge. Of course "I've been looking for freedom" resonates well with 17 million people who just got the iron curtain lifted, and we from the western part certainly shared their joy. But yes, when we wanted to fill the dance floor we pulled out "I've been looking for freedom".

    I just wanted to join YOUR fan club and thank you for sharing your memories. The Hoff is part of pop culture and you've made him a little more real and accessible. He's no Elvis but Hoff is OK in my book.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    Credit where credit is due. He made himself into a international cultural icon.

    That being said, the bar for being a Promi is ridiculously low here. The popularity of Looking for Freedom here was a happy timing coincidence more than anything else. The Hoff hasn't been "big in Germany" since the late 80s.

    He's also popular at The Mediocre Bassist Club.
