“Music is my loyal companion, my partner in crime. It’s doesn’t matter what I’m doing or what’s my mood, music is always with me.”
“Lemmy Kilmister, that guy was the pure essence of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He did what he wanted to do and didn’t care what the rest of the world could think of him. He just wanted to make Rock ‘n’ Roll. This is part of the formula to make music last forever.”
“I grew up in the 80s, so lots of hair metal as well as 80s British and American Pop/Rock. It was a happy decade.”

“I’ve always been crazy for music and one day I was in a friend’s bar, he was the owner, DJ and barman. One very busy night he asked me to play some records in exchange of beer. I agreed for the beer. Who would have thought it was the beginning of me discovering one of my greatest pleasures in life.”
“All sorts of Rock music, the defining feature will be my mood at that moment – but definitely rock!”
“I don’t really have a favourite. If I had to pick I’d look to some classics like Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revival. Or maybe some modern bands like Wolfmother or The Datsuns.”

“It’s got to be Journey. I know it’s a cheesy band and is the flag of what’s called corporate rock but it sticks with me from when I was a kid listening to them in my brother’s car.”
