On stage 1989

Today I went back, couldn´t resist to share this croony, after midnight picture with the world.
I started out as a drummer, hiding behind a wall of cymballs and toms. It just fellt natural with my introverted personality. In the late eighties and early nineties I stepped up as a frontman of a band called `Catch My Drift`.
It was the first time I played my songs with a full band and it was a chance for me to get in touch with my extravert side. I mostly played the crazy, teasing clown. We were all Zappa fans, so we tried out a lot of styles, basically rooted in seventies pop blended with funk, rock, jazz, blues, latin and humor. The best memories I have of those days are the the antics I pulled on stage. I improvised a lot to interact with the crowd just for the effect. Funny boy. Now I´m hiding behind a keyboard or guitar, pulling out whatever comes out of my fingertips. Ok, it doesn´t Sound that adventurous, but it´s fun enough for me for now.
