BIOGRAPHY:
Robert Görl is a German musician, best known for his work with Gabi Delgado Lopez for Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft (D.A.F.) and for his solo recordings, particularly "Night Full Of Tension" for "Mute Records".
Görl started his life in an orphanage. As a child, Görl got drum lessons from the jazz musician Freddie Brocksieper. In 1974 he started a classical music education at the Leopold-Mozart-Zentrum (Leopold Mozart Conservatory) in Augsburg and in 1976 at the University of Graz, also devoting himself to jazz. In 1978, he interrupted his studies, went to London and became interested in punk rock. In the same year he met Gabriel "Gabi" Delgado-López in Düsseldorf and formed DAF. Görl also played in other bands such as Der Plan. DAF recorded five albums and broke up in 1983.
In 1984, Görl recorded his first solo album Night Full of Tension, working with Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics (Görl had played drums on the 1981 Eurythmics album In the Garden).
DAF reformed in 1985 to record 1st Step to Heaven. In 1989, Görl suffered a serious car accident, became a Buddhist and traveled for three years studying in Asia. After his return he recorded several albums and singles on the Munich techno label Disko B.  
DAF reformed again in 2000 and recorded Fünfzehn neue D.A.F-Lieder (15 New D.A.F-Songs) in early 2003. They split again in 2005. In 2008 they reformed for their 30th anniversary tour, 30 Jahre DAF (Der 30-jährige Krieg), and recorded the single "Du bist DAF" ("You are DAF") in 2010.
