Biography

On my official website I would like to introduce myself as a professional bassplayer and guitarist with over 30 years of live and studio experience in the rock 'n' roll business. Troughout my musical career, I have shared the stage with many well-known artists from all over the world.

DIO, SHORTINO, Huriah Heep, Nazareth, Mothers Finest, Scorpions, KINGDOME COME, DREAMCATCHER, LANCELOT, JUICY LUCY, VANDEN PLAS, BODO SCHOPF, THOMAS BLUG, ALEX BEYRODT, MAT SINNER, DEVILS TRAIN, PENDULUM OF FORTUNE, ALL MY SHADOWS and many more.
