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?

I'm a bit excited 'bout a new project: Some years ago (I guess it was 2013) my good friend Sammy saw a YONKS performance at the Logo Hamburg and came up with the idea to cooperate with him on a Sammy/Yonks'ish kinda band with german lyrics. We developed (from scratch) and recorded some of these sailor/pirate-inspired songs a couple of weeks ago at Alex Mackenrott's (yes, the guy from Masterplan) place, not really knowing where this would lead us to. After listening to the results I must say, we came up with some fine, very special aural pearls I'd like to describe as "Sailor Heavy Rock". Holy shit, I'm proud of 'em, and I'm grateful Sammy called us! Now we're thinking of how to get this to you out there. Of course I'll keep ya posted!

Until then, welcome the refugees (the few that keep coming), stay calm and ROCK! \m/


Peace, Richie
