Becoming a Musician

 

 

 

.
Time flew and hair grew. You might be surprised, but there were still black and white photos in 1977.
I started playing the guitar at the age of 13. My parents where sure a guitar would be another thing I would loose interest in after a few weeks, so I had to convince my grandma to buy my first guitar.
Well my parents were wrong and I got obsessed with music. I spent all day practicing and listening to music.
I listened to everything that was around. From Yes to Genesis, from T Rex to Mott the Hoople, from Deep Purple to Led Zeppelin. My favorite band was -and in some concerns still is- Rainbow. I really liked the mixture of heavy rock guitars with strong vocal melodies and powerful drums.



Being a fan of Uli Roth and Michael Schenker my guitars were either Fender Strat's or Gibson V's.
Watch the cover of the Rainbow Lp in the left hand corner. I used to play along with that record a lot.
