Highlight of your career so far:

For me highlight do not exist, playing for me means pure love - whether it is in big concerts or in studio or with a small group, it doesn't matter.

Drumming strengths:

I do not play a Drumset, but an instrument which is being created by playing together with other musicians

Drumming means to me:

Being my real self, without playing too much the instrument and without the instrument playing too much myself. It's life and character!

Advice for up and coming drummers:

Never copy anyone: listening to other drum players is very useful, but you have to use your own character and soul

How would you describe yourself:

I am always searching for myself on the cymbals and on the drums...I am too glad to do this as a profession!

When I look back on my life one day, I would like to be able to say:

I would be glad to leave something sincere and positive behind. Everybody has a meaning in life, I would have my meaning in my profession as a drum player, in order to convey my being to the people
