I was born in May 1999. Now it’s up to you to do the maths 🙂
Most likely not
In general yes. Most of the songs I covered were requested by someone, e.g. Wipe Out, Tom Sawyer, Light My Fire and many more. But... For any 'regular' drum cover (the ones that I do not record from scratch) I need to rely on a drumless track, so there are some bands I can't do because there are no good drumless tracks available, like Led Zeppelin, Jimy Hendrix and some more. Also, please note that I get more than 50 requests a week, so it's impossible to check them all out and to comment on every suggestion. I bundle the most requested songs for my polls. Lately, some people requested drum covers of certain songs and then they got really nasty when I had to turn their request down. So please!!! Feel free to send me your request but please don't be offended it I can't do it for one reason or another or even without any reasons...
At the age of 10
In the very West of Germany, right in the middle of nowhere between the cities 'Krefeld' (Germany) and 'Venlo' (Netherlands)
It depends really! I might consider to join a professional band anywhere in Europe or America if this band will allow me to make my living as a drummer. I won’t move to another country in order to play on a wedding every now and then. You have a professional job for a drummer to offer? Then send me a message!
It depends again. I get so many requests and I am very busy with the collaborations I agreed to earlier. So what do you have to offer? Are you a great musicians or singer or songwriter? Do you have a great idea for a spectacular piece of art that the world needs to know? Or do you look good at least? Only joking. I guess you got my point…
Unfortunately, I had to stop my regular 'recording service' because I could not handle all those requests anymore after I subscribed to the Drummers Institute. However, if you want to suggest an interesting project, please send me a mail via my web form. Please note that I can only commit to projects I really love!
Yes, check out my album 'Chi MIGHT'
Since the summer of 2015 I endorse Kirchhoff drums. 'Kirchhof Schlagwerk' is a small manufacturer of High Class Acrylic drums. They also build regular wooden drums but they are most famous for their Acrylic Shells. I use an Acrylic set, too. The company is located close to my home village so it was kind of obvious for me to endorse them. Check out their fancy design on https://www.facebook.com/KirchhoffSchlagwerk2006/?fref=ts For my earlier videos I used a Vintage 80s Pearl Masters Custom kit.
I'm a Meinl endorser and I use Meinl Pure Alloy cymbals. They have a very bright sound which is good for my Classic Rock kinda style. I do not like nowadays modern 'super dry' cymbals
I'm an Evans endorser. Ususally, I use transparent EC2 drum heads for my toms and a coated UV1 drum head for my snare. I use an Evans EQ4 for my kick drum.
True answer, there is non, really. I love many bands and drummers of the 70s and 80s and also some 90s or more current Prog Rock bands, not to forget some 60s All-time-favorites, like The Beatles, The Who, Kinks, Rolling Stones and many more. However, there are some drummers who stand out for me, e.g. the great Jeff Porcaro or Simon Phillipps, but to cut a long story short: It's dozens of bands and musicians I really like a lot and I can't name only a few who I like better than all the rest
