acoustic guitar, percussion
Born 1955 in the Ticino, Switzerland. When I was 12 years old I got my first guitar and I started to take lessons straight away. Already in those days I was fascinated how people like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour played their guitars and produced fantastic sounds. When I was 15 I played in my first band (BAD COUNTRY BOYS) doing “gigs” in nightclubs. In those days there were no Discos in the Ticino.
Between 18 and 19 years of age I arrived in the big city of Basel! It was 1976 and the startup of the “Rock-Pop Band CANCER in Riehen.
After getting married and having children I had a long musical abstinence. It was only at the age of 51 that I resumed my guitar playing again with several different bands (including a 10-year stint with an unplugged Cover-Band together with Clive) until I joined in 2014 the band “ROUGH ENDS DOWN” as an electric guitarist where I met Marcel.
Since 2017 I am also a member of the band “Shellstone” where I play acoustic-melodious songs.
