[de] Warrant's Jani Lane ist tot

Jani Lane war der Sänger 90er Hair Metal Band Warrant. Er starb im Alter von 47 Jahren an einer – man mag es kaum sagen – [...]

[en] The greatest rockstar of all times, or, About aging

How many times did you meet someone, who tried to convince you to listen to their favorite music, watch their favorite movie, eat their favorite food, drive their favorite car and stuff like that? The younger those people are the more enthusiastic their judgment about that specific idol is. Wild exaggerations and extremely overreaching vocabulary [...]

[en,de] Album: Untitled

So, here’s the stuff that’s not yet wrapped up on a CD. Sadly enough my enthusiasm for making music has cooled down a lot lately. There are persistent speculations that might be the result of circumstances of life. Actually I can’t deny the fact I always came up with the best songs when I was [...]

Track No 4 from the “Untitled Album“. No further comment. Parts of it from Craig Pruess‘ Vajra Guru Mantra of the CD “Sacred Chants of Buddha” (©1999, HoE Music Limited). Thanks, Craig, for the kind permission. Obviously with this song my musical creativty was shut down, since I never touched a guitar again. Track Nr.4 [...]

Track No 2 from the “Untitled Album“. More a short-story with music than a song. For first listening I recommend: Time of day > 11 P.M., turn out all lights, good headphones and a relaxed and open mind. Track Nr.2 vom “Untitled Album“. Mehr eine Kurzgeschichte mit Musik als ein song. Zum ersten Hören empfehle [...]

Track No 1 from the “Untitled Album“. Sometimes you have to do things, that you really dont like, cause sometimes you reach the point, when there is no more “we”, but when it’s only about “you or me”. Track Nr.1 vom “Untitled Album“. Manchmal muss man Dinge tun, die einem nicht wirklich gefallen, denn irgendwann [...]

[en,de] Album: Rebirth

99 and 2000 have been two strange years for me. After I’ve lost almost everything, that was important to me ever, I pretty much lost ground under my feet. You can feel it in these songs. I’m not sure where I’d be today, if I didn’t have my music. Of course it wasn’t a real [...]

Track No 6 from the Album “Rebirth“. How to overcome self-pity when a kick in the pants from the outside just isn’t enough? You have to kick yourself.. and understand it. Sounds so easy, when its over… Track Nr.6 vom Album “Rebirth“. Wie überwindet man Selbstmitleid, wenn Arschtritte von außen nichts nutzen? Man muss sich [...]
