The Waterboys

THE WATERBOYS - The Freewheelin’ Mike Scott

Waterboys boss Mike Scott is what you call a real type: an indestructible loner, idealist, romantic and do-gooder. One who doesn't care about commercial success, who does everything to be unpredictable. But also one who possesses great entertainer qualities and enjoys a high reputation among his colleagues. Now he presents his 13th band album - and enthuses about Bootlegs, Burg Herzberg and The Clash.

THE OUTSIDE - On the Death of Scott Walker

3. June 2019

Scott Walker

DER AUSSENSEITER - Zum Tod von Scott Walker

FOREQUARTERS Scott Walker is dead. Is that even possible? Isn't he one of those legendary figures, known only from the Bible or medieval verses, who rise again and again after each death? A musical phoenix of modern times? The Austrian-Israeli writer Max Brod wrote that death was a temporary state of weakness. With Scott Walker, this seems to be true in more ways than one.

Neal Morse

NEAL MORSE erntet die Früchte seines anhaltenden kreativen Höhenflugs und liefert eine Rockoper über das Wirken Jesu

It took ten years for "Jesus Christ The Exorcist" to see the light of day. No wonder, because mammoth projects with the Flying Colors, Transatlantic and the Neal Morse Band drove the music-obsessed just as much around as solo tours.

Six years after his death a first album with songs from the estate of J.J. CALE is released

JJ Cale

Sechs Jahre nach seinem Tod erscheint ein erstes Album mit Songs aus dem Nachlass von J.J. CALE

Most managers talk about "clients" or "artists." Mike Kappus, on the other hand, speaks of his "friend". Because the relationship the 68-year-old now had with J.J. Cale was unique. "He was a real unicum," says the San Francisco-based manager and producer, who has also worked with John Lee Hooker and Van Morrison. "It was often not easy to run his business, because he had no telephone and could hardly be reached. But I consider myself lucky to have known him."
