WHERE DID YOU MEET ALEX?
In the Rhine area, you meet a lot of musicians during the Carnival season – lots of bands in varying setups. Alex was playing bass for the MK-Band when we met.
WHAT DID YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THE RECORDING OF “THE HOCKEY PROJECT” ?
I love the studio vibe. And it was pretty cool to have the chance to record along trumpet player Ruediger Baldauf!
APART FROM MUSIC – WHAT ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?
I work as a sound enineer from time to time. I am fascinated by the fast pace of the technical progress in that area.
And I like fishing.
WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE BEEN IF YOU HADN’T BECOME A MUSICIAN ?
I have a degree in biology, but there was no money to be made in that field. So I decided to pusue a more promising career – playing the trombone.
