UsBest

ca. 1992-1995, 2008/09


My favorite pastime in the 90ies, when we released a CD called 10 on one. Heart and soul of the Band was my brother Atti, who's not only a badass of a drummer, but also will stay in my heart as a friend 4ever. He's btw one of the most talented people I know, and he cut this video from a reunion concert we did in June 2009 (below), too (Check out the vid below and on myspace as well). With us was Ansas Strehlow (Kickhunter) on the keys and Kai Noll on vocals. On bass we had Victor Gomez from Argentina, who was later substituted by Artjom Feldtser (Maks & the Minors, Go-rillaz, "My favorite Russky"), during the reunion.

Though we didn't achieve world domination with this mixture of hard rock and groovy stuff, we created some good music 2gether, played some awesome gigs (Remember Greifswald? I don't, haha!), and we had fun galore.

 

And beer... :o)

What's up, Ridge?

19.5.2019

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
