I started to play drums when I was 9. My first experience I gained in the School Band BLIND WIZZARD (1980–1984). Because of the influence of drummers like John Bonham, Ian Paice, Cozy Powell I changed into different Hard and Heavy-Line Ups in 1987 and played in bands like PARADIZZE (GER, 1987-1988) and THE WARNING (GER, 1988-1992). They supported ROGER CHAPMAN and MAGNUM in several shows. In August 2007 I joined to the Western Metal Band called DEZPERADOZ.
