ABOUT

I used to play in a pop- rock band in the sixties & seventies in Germany, records, TV, tours etc. Then dropped it for 40 years and now back since 2010 with great enthusiasm. I play classic rock (Cream, Clapton, Bad Co, Tremoloes, Fortunes, Ivy League, Beatles, Eagles - lots of multi vocal stuff with digitech vocal processor. Les Paul & Strat , as well as the Taylor T5 all through Orange OR 15 and two 4X12's - . I only play in my garage, no gigs - it's all about fun and good people getting along. I am now retired and have more time. Please, note: I play classic Rock, meaning I make some noise. How are you gonna play Bad Co at 79 decibles? The Who at 80? Ain't gonna happen. If whispering into the mic is what you are looking for, I will not be your man. I will never play at a small venue at 60 decibles, it's just not right.
