After graduating from high school he went to Germany and Austria for post secondary education. He got his PhD in political science from the university of Berlin.

At a young age Farrokhzad had a passion for poetry and for singing and he turned that passion to reality in 1962 when he started writing poems in Germany which were published in two German newspapers. In 1964 Farrokhzad published his collection of poems called "Fasleh Digar" "(Another Season)". His book was critically acclaimed and was honored by many famous German poets. Five moths after the release of "Fasleh Digar" Farrokhzad received the the Poetry Award of Berlin.

For a couple years Farrokhzad was a member of the Munich Academy of Poetry. In 1966 he found his way to the Television and Radio of Munich. On Radio he had a comedy and music progoram which played middle eastern music including music from Iran. On TV he created and produced a show called خيابان های آلپ.

In 1967 he returned to Iran and performed on succesful radio and TV shows. His most successful and famous TV show was "Mikhakeh Noghrei". The show was wached by millions of Iranianians. On the show Farokhzad introduced and discovered many famous Iranian artists who are famoums now like Sattar, Shohreh, Shahram Solati, Ebi, Morteza, Hamid Shabkhiz, Leila Forouhar, Saeed Mohammadi and many more. Farrokhzad married twice and both marriages ended in failure.

Once in 1962 to a German woman named Ania Buchkowski whom he met at Oxford. She like Farrokhzad also had a passion for poetry and theater and it was after meeting her that Farrokhzad started writing poems. They divorced but they have a son called Rostam. His second marriage was to an Iranian woman which also ended in a divorce. On August 6, 1992 Farrokhzad was stabbed to death and beheaded with a knife at his home in Bonn, Germany.

He was found three days later by his neighbor, his body was found lying in a pool of blood with his dog whimpering beside him. The murder has been treated as a work of the Iranian government intelligent service, because of Farrokhzad's anti-Islamic Republic remarks in his shows, which insulted mainly Ayatollah Khomeini and other leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. He was a great entertainer and trained many Persian singers currently living in Los Angeles. He was known by his supporters to be an educated patriot who spoke out against the Islamic Republic. Farrokhzad was always present during many demonstrations and always spoke out loud and clear against the Islamic Republic. Read more on Last.fm.
