Biography

Im Herbst 1978 ging es in der Jugendmusikschule der Stadt Löhne los und es folgte über Schulorchester und Blasmusikkapelle ein Ritt durch verschiedenste Genres mit Ausflügen in die Bereiche Country, Industrial, Musical, Pop, Rockabilly und Soul. Klar war aber stets, dass der Rock 'n' Roll die musikalische Heimat sein würde. Gepflegt wird diese schon lange mit den bundesweit aktiven Bands Big Balls (AC/DC-Tribute, seit 1999) und Randale (Rockmusik für Kinder, seit 2004). Was für ein Glück, das alles tun zu dürfen – und mit so tollen Instrumenten ;-)
