What was the beginning of your music career? How did it all start?
It all started with the Rolling Stones, they were placed in my cradle. From then on, I found rock music to be the greatest, and as I got older, I was already playing in small bands. But at that time still on the drums, later I changed to the vocals, where I felt very comfortable. Meanwhile, I have been their singer since the founding of Gloria Volt.
Were there bumps on the road? What challenges did you have to deal with?
We are still playing in the same formation since our founding eleven years ago, which means we have found each other and we all work together. The biggest challenge is planning, because we all work and part of us also has a family.
What has been the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far?
Very cool was when we were allowed to play in front of Motörhead, in front of a sold-out house. We put on a great show and sold a lot of merchandise accordingly. We also met the guys from Motörhead, they were super nice and very likeable.
How would you describe the music you normally create?
We do hard rock, sometimes there is a pinch of punk.
What does your creative process look like?
Drink a lot of beer, pull in the sound, take the guitar, start playing and see what comes out of it
If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
It’s hard to say, maybe you could support young bands more. But since we are already old anyway, it doesn’t matter
If you were asked to give one piece of advice to up-and-coming bands, what would it be?
It is important that you take each other into consideration and are also willing to compromise. And you should make music that you like!
What has been the best performance of your career so far?
I think the best performance of our career is that we are still in the original line-up, after eleven years this is already relatively rare.
If you hadn’t become a musician, what would you do now?
I really wanted to be a musician or a motocross rider. In the meantime I am glad that I did not become a motocross rider . I would piss😊 my pants in fear.
What’s new about the band at the moment? What are you currently working on and would like to share it with the world?
We have a new EP in the box, with the rather stupid name “100 Years”, which will be released at the end of October. Now it’s time to land some good shows and knit your legs.
