Enjoying myself

I've been playing the piano ever since I was able to reach the keys and it is part of my earliest childhood memories, how this machine was able to express my feelings with so little effort. You touch it and boom! After having spend years with Mozart and his fellows, becoming a teenager, my desires naturally changed. I remember my Dad telling me “If you learn how to play the guitar, you'll be the guy that all the girls will be after.” Luckily I believed him, and being quiet lousy in the beginning the rock'n'roll mates I had handed me over the bass. I simply fell in love. I felt how close and powerful you work at the emotional essence of the music by playing the bass, without having to be the great show-off at the front in the first place. So I practiced my ass off, played the musical “Cats” when I was 20 and went to study my instrument at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam shortly afterwards. Then love carried my to Berlin in 2002, where I kept doing what I am doing ever since. I never wanted to be a great virtuous genius on my ax, just alway wanted to be pure and joyful in what I am doing, playing my bass and writing my music. I don't believe in prestige, pressure, fame or competition. I am just enjoying myself and the feed back of my audience proofs my right.
