I've always been a big Duane Eddy Fan. That led to playing Gretsch Guitars and doing Rock'n'Roll, Surf- and Twang music. But instead of copying, I would rather write my own songs in the style of the 1950ies and 1960ies. I even managed to get into the Austrian Charts with my music, wrote music for movies and recorded a lot of CD's with several bands. I was (and maybe will always be) very inspired by those mystical Gretsch guitars and started to collect all sorts of informations around this theme. I enjoy listening to great Gretsch players, like Al Caiola, Duane Eddy, Cliff Gallup, Brian Setzer, Billy Duffy, just to name a few, and have owned and played Gretsch guitars for the last 30 years. There is always a Gretsch waiting just around the corner! And it is very likely that I want to have it . . .
