ABOUT

TARGET EAGLE is the first notable band I formed, just 20 years old, in 1986. This band introduced me to my longtime friend Andy Sachs (bass). It is the beginning of a very productive musical career. Instrumental shred albums where the thing, so why not do one myself ?‘ I thought. Produced by my mentor, Wolfgang Roch, I released a solo demo to international praise in 1987. After an exciting phase writing songs with PETER WINTER for a BMG/Ariola pitch I formed CHANGES in 1991 with Peter ‚Zegge‘ Zechiel and Georg Schanze. CHANGES started as a progressive power trio but became more accessible with the addition of superb singer Michael ‚Watz‘ Waidelich in October 1992. Line-up was completed by Willy Schmitz (bass) and Torsten Daul (drums). 1995 I was invited by bass player Norbert Dreikluft to a session that led to the formation of THREE MILE SMILE. Together with Ebo Rock (voc, gt) and Andreas Engels (drums) we were offering more alternative oriented rock. 1997 the collaboration with Klaus Schmuck started, first in JERRY CAN, later in the hard rocking OCEAN BED. In 2002 I re-started my solo recordings. I also joined forces with power house singer Jan Knopf forming HIGH ROAD EASY in 2008. HIGH ROAD EASY released 4 full length records, their latest 2020.

ABOUT

TARGET EAGLE is the first notable band I formed with my mentor Wolfgang Roch, back in 1986. In the 80‘s instrumental shred albums where the thing, so ‚why not do one myself?‘, I thought. Produced by Wolfgang, it was released 1987 to international praise. Singer PETER WINTER had interest by BMG / Ariola, and I was recommended to join. We worked on his songs, checked out some of mine, but Peter ended up doing a pro demo using PINK CREAM 69 as his studio band. I continued to study musicology, and free of commercial aspects, in 1991 formed the progressive rock trio CHANGES with Zegge Zechiel and Georg Schanze. We had fun, played great gigs, but ultimately everyone moved on. End of 1992 CHANGES consisted of superb singer Michael Waidelich, Willy Schmitz on bass and Torsten Daul on drums. This incarnation of CHANGES further improved my songs, taking the progressive ideas and manage to fuse them to melodic rock songs the average listeners can enjoy, too. 1995 I was asked to join a new band, which became THREE MILE SMILE. Led by singer Ebo Rock we were offering more alternative oriented rock. 1997 the collaboration with KLAUS SCHMUCK started, first supporting him in JERRY CAN, later also forming the hard rocking OCEAN BED. In 2002 I was more and more interested in recording, mixing and producing. Therefore it made sence to restart my solo recordings. 2008 I joined forces with power house singer Jan Knopf forming HIGH ROAD EASY, releasing 4 full length records, our latest in 2020.
