Neu! recorded three albums before splitting up in the mid-1970s. Dinger and Rother reunited in the studio in the mid-1980s for a fourth Neu! album, which was released a decade later in 1995.

Dinger formed La Dusseldorf, who had hits with Silver Cloud and Rheinita, following his initial tenure with Neu! In a statement paying tribute to his musical colleague, Rother says: "Together with many friends of his music I will remember Klaus for his creativity as an artist and I will think about him with gratitude for his wonderful contributions to our project Neu!"
