By way of introduction, I’m breaking away from writing everything in the third person…It’s my page, it’s about me, myself and I, so I’m writing this in the first person!
I first saw the light of day in Oberhausen (North Rhine-Westphalia) in November 1972! Like just about everyone, I went to nursery and then school. After that I started an apprenticeship as a painter and varnisher, which I successfully completed 🙂
I’ve been living for some time now in the small and beautiful Saarland! It still amazes me that so many people don’t know the Saarland… Damned cheek 😉
Now to the music…. what do I do and why do I make music?
I’ve loved listening to music since my childhood! I liked trawling through my uncle’s record collection and listened to music for hours on end. The songs and artists I liked listening to as I grew up included Pink Floyd, Chris de Burgh, Sailor and Kraftwerk – to name but a few.
Then came the 80s and the 90s! During the 90s I often went to clubs and through a DJ friend of mine I started off as an LJ (light jockey). I did that for almost 3 years, working in three clubs as an LJ. Then a DJ colleague asked me one time if I could stand in for him one evening as he’d suddenly got a toothache. I should add that I he’d always let me do some DJing at the start of the evening to kick the show off… So anyway, I said YES and quickly started sorting through my CDs. I also said I needed a Jack and Coke or two… just to calm my nerves, you understand 🙂
