<<< Back


My musical 'career' started when I was at the 'tenderly' age of 20. At that time I had to quit my ambitions to become a professional football-player (means soccer for you americans ;-) at our local team FC Olten because of my job. So I was looking for a new challenge - but I didn't find one and so I started playing music...
As a drummer you are more in the background of a band, I didn't want that. I also heard that you should be pretty good to play that intrument properly, so that wasn't something for me. The talent that some say my throat has, is very overrated - so singer wasn't the right thing too. A keyboard has way too many keys and the guitar with its 6 string seemed to be quite difficult too.
So all that remained was the bass - and it stayed
that way until today. Despite some lessons I
never became a real good musician, but luckyly bass-players don't have to be that. And the guys from 'FELONY' let me play with them anyway - which I'm very thankfully for...

 

So you really wanna get up-close and personal now? Does anybody really care what my favorite drink is, or what color my pyjama has? I think rather not...
But check out one of my favorite TV-Commercials . And even I'm not a fan of David Beckham  (or maybe that's why ;-) I like this little clip very much. Who's into cats? You might find this one quite amusing. For all you dog owners this lesson eventually might be valuable. And the baby in the following clip wasn't hurt at all (well I do hope so... ;-). And for closing, something musically; although I'm not really into blues-music, this song was one of my alltime favorites in my childhood. So, now you still got to know some personal pieces of me, didn't you? And if you're still interested about the color of my PJ's - I don't wear any! For further questions please email me at the address above...
