What can you tell about your musical development?

What can you tell about your musical development?
When I was 5 years old my parents noticed that I liked to jingle on our old piano. They looked for a music teacher who was willing to give a little guy, who was not even capable to read and write, some lessons. From this time on I got piano lessons for 13 years, some experiences in a “combo” with other music scholars and later on also some coffee. After a break of 2-3 years I played in different bands with diverse musical orientations, like rock, ska, reggae and also cover of the 70`s and 80`s

How did you get to Hella Donna? And when?
One day, as I drove down the road, there suddenly was a man standing on the side of the street, holding a sign “Keyboarder wanted”. Apparently he was standing there for a while. As I found out later that guy was Renè the bass guitarist of “Hella Donna”. That was in the beginning of 2012, see podcast no. 7.
