Die Panik-Experten

My new project, a Udo-Lindenberg-Tribute thing. Musical excellence and professionalism meets the music of my youth, and on top of that: Hannes Bauer, long time axeman of Panikorchester and one of my personal guitar heroes since the late 70ies, occasionally will join us on stage, along with Jean-Jaques Kravetz, Panikorchester's keyboard-player! Stay tuned for the dates on this very page!

What's up, Ridge?


Just got back from a Sammy-gig at Downtown Blues Club in Hamburg, and I'm pumped with gratitude: Man, I just played with an amazing band, featuring guest contributions from Eckart Hofmann, who played with the likes of Eric Burdon, King Size Taylor, Tony Sheridan, Achim Reichel and Udo Lindenberg, and Michael V'delli (Rock'n Blues powerhouse from Perth/Australia), who inspired me forming the 3-piece band Yonks. Whataband, whatablast! Sharing stage with these musicians makes me... yeah, above: grateful. These occasions not only make my day, they make music such an invaluable share of my life.

Enough words. Still:

Welcome the refugees (the few that keep coming), be good to yourself, stay calm and ROCK! \m/


Peace, Richie
