I started playing drums when I was 15 years old. I played in some local bands and at the age of 20, Guido, one of the Donots guitar players, invited me to play with Donots. So, since 1995 I am a member of the band and I am enjoying every single minute of it.
When I started out in 1990 I had some drumming lessons in Ibbenbueren, hometown of the Donots, and later on Marco Minnemann taught me some further skills. He introduced me to some additional effective drumming techniques. For the most part one can say I have improved a lot by practicing and playing together with the bands I have been in. I'm really having a blast playing in the Donots. I really like being on tour and in the studio and basically having a good time with friends. Thats what makes drumming so important for me.
Summer 2004 we released the 6th Donots album entitled Got The Noise our 4th official release on Supersonic records, BMG. In 2005 we release the new Donots DVD in Europe and in Japan. We will be touring Europe and Japan again and I will have a lot of fun.
