    Joachim Fuchsberger is dead:Sad day for the German

    Joachim Fuchsberger is dead : It is again a sad day for the German entertainment industry have been. Joachim Fuchs Berger is dead. 

    Most people knew him by his nickname Blacky. 87 years old he has become. One of his last interviews he gave a few months at Markus Lanz in ZDF ago. The show has just aired again, and at the end stood at the audience and applauded this great man. Touching. 


    My first TV encounter with him I had with "On, steady, go", his Saturday night show at first. In the 80s he hosted the game with the letters and words. Still worth seeing. When he "Wetten, dass ...?" Bets in Frank Elstners lost, he had to host a show in her nightgown. He pulled through and got a beating. At that time it was a scandal, today we would laugh about it. 


    In "Today 'Evening", he interviewed many, many celebrities, "yes or no", he led Robert Lemckes "What am I?" continued. 


    Long, long before my time, he played in many Edgar Wallace films, turned to one or the other Pauker film - and he was announcer at the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972. As it was said, an aircraft maneuver at the stadium, there was a risk of stroke, the decision lay with him to vacate the stadium. He decided against it for fear of a stampede. An incredible burden that was upon him there. 


    2007 until he saw as Lord Dickham in Oliver Kalkofes "Neues vom WiXXer" sensation. Until the end Fuchsberger was an alert observer of German television, he had a great sense of humor. When he was on talk shows as a guest, you hung on his lips. 

    Shortly before Joachim Fuchsberger's first anniversary of his death, "Blacky: Memories of a Gentleman" published by Gundula Fuchsberger is published today.

    First there was the big void. When Joachim Blacky Fuchsberger died on 11 September 2014 at the age of 87 at his house in Grünwald near Munich, his dismay was great: his audience mourns the loss of a jovial but also unadorned man, who actually had only friends. In the course of his decades of career as a broadcaster, actor, TV presenter, author and filmmaker, he has made countless contacts around the world - from world star to lesser known companion.

    For his wife, Gundula, 85, after almost 60 years of marriage, saying goodbye was like a big black hole opening up in front of her. In an interview with the "Bild" newspaper, the widow said at the end of last week, "I told myself after Blacky's death: You can give up or continue now, I've decided to keep going, so I try as best I can to make ends meet. "

    "Blacky, memories of a gentleman"

    She went to the family grave as often as possible, where the husband was buried next to her son, Thomas Fuchsberger, 58, who tragically died in 2010. She talked to them, talked her grief off her soul, told about the book to which they had persuaded many friends. This Monday, "Blacky: Memories of a Gentleman" (Gütersloher Verlagshaus), published by Gundula Fuchsberger, will be released.

    "This book is meant to be a thank you to all who have helped us with words and deeds, thoughts and help, and now they enrich my life," she writes in the foreword.

    Close friends and companions such as Frank Elstner, Dieter Pröttel, Markus Lanz, Sandra Maischberger, Oliver Kalkofe, Count Andreas von Faber-Castell, Nina Ruge and Jan Josef Liefers describe very personal encounters and memories of Joachim Fuchsberger. And his wife has contributed succinct to touching statements and lyrics by Blacky.
