A Gesture Of Friendship

gomez's (reamonn) signature on the CNC machine
 
 

most of the staff working in our factory are music lovers. anytime an artist, of which our guys are fans of, visits our factory, they want his autograph written on the actual machine they are working on day by day. today benny greb hung out at the factory. thorsten, who is a great fan of benny, had him sign our ultra-sound-cleansing machine. thorsten works on that machine every day. and benny's cymbals (as well as almost all others) are being cleansed in it. other artists have signed other machines on which their cymbals are made on. that's a nice way to connect our workers with our cymbals and with our artists. our guys identify themselves even more with our cymbals. it's a great motivation for them and a nice gesture from the artists showing their respect.

...da fällt mir ein, etwas was ich seit langem mal fragen wollte. Ein (ich weiß nicht ob ehemaliger) Meinl-Artist den ich immer sehr toll fand ist der belgische Schlagzeuger Philippe Allaert, der meines Wissens nach auch als Produzent tätig ist.
Er spielte Drums u.a. für Viktor Lazlo, Zap Mama und v.a. Vaya Con Dios. Leider ist er in eurem Artist-Verzeichnis nicht zu finden... (also auf dem 2004er Vaya Con Dios Album \"The Promise\" ist zumindest noch zu lesen, dass er Meinl Cymbals spielt)... er hatte immer einen fantastischen Schlagzeugsound!

...weiß ja nicht ob er noch Meinl-Artist ist, aber falls ja... macht doch mal ein Profil von ihm ;-)

liebe Grüße aus Neumarkt/Oberpfalz
