Klaus Nomi may have been a German native and New York City dweller who came about in the Punk/New Wave era, but he was of his own time and place that others could only visit. Singing in an operatic style, with a range that extended from baritone to countertenor, Nomi sounded like no one else, though he cited Maria Callas and Elvis Presley as his greatest influences.
