Influences

In a nutshell, I have been non-negligibly influenced by approximately 42% of everything that lies spiritually, sonically and otherwise between Pharaoh Tutankhamun and Ozzy Osbourne.

EQUIPMENT

A little bit of everything....for example, I have an amulet (see the main picture) made of walrus tusk and some leather by an Eskimo from eastern Siberia. In contrast to many other pieces of my equipment, this amulet makes no sound whatsoever. It was given to me by a Russian scientist from Novosibirsk to protect me against bad women. When thanking her, I accidentally and somewhat non-diplomatically mentioned that I do not believe too much in magic powers of amulets. She smiled and said: “Please, don’t worry, it will protect you even if you don’t believe in it.” And yes, I am a guitar junkie....probably a ski junkie, too....otherwise, I'm mostly harmless, just trying to smell the flowers...

EPILOGUE:
“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” —Walter Hagen
