SCHWARZBRENNER beweisen, dass erdiger Blues und klassische Romantik zusammengehen

Wolfgang Becker and his two comrades-in-arms of the trio Schwarzbrenner, based in Ratingen, North Rhine-Westphalia, are seasoned blues men. Especially idols like Cream or Rory Gallagher have taken a liking to the formation around the 65-year-old mastermind.

The internet teaches that he doesn't like questions about his famous father at all, and of course he has enough to say about the new - convincing - album "Exit Wounds" by his band The Wallflowers. But in the end he is ready to say a few sentences about his father.

eclipsed: Why did you take almost a decade off while not releasing a Wallflowers album or a solo album?

Die Entstehung seines Debütalbums bezeichnet TIM HUSUNG als wahre Odyssee

In his main profession, Tim Husung from Hagen is a drummer and as such has been on the road a lot with the band John Diva And The Rockets Of Love, also in their home country; touring in California and Arizona, among other places, has left its mark on the visual language of his debut. "The motherland of rock'n'roll for me isn't just the USA though, it's England too. If you can pick up the vibe in the US though, it's certainly formative."
