RPWL Live Experience from 2009
was waiting for a DVD of RPWL. So we finally got the chance to do it
at the end of the “RPWL Experience” tour. We were recording it
in Katowice, Poland, in the beautiful Theater Slaski and were able to
give the audience a ramble of our band history. This experience was
had a song called This Is Not A Prog Song on the The RPWL Experience
album. Do you try to distance yourself from the narrow confines of
prog rock and how would you describe your music ?
the thing is that some of the so called “prog experts” take the
whole thing a bit too serious. In fact it doesn't matter if you do
prog or rock or pop or whatever. As an artist you can only follow
your heart or say the things that are close to your heart. But
anyway, humor is an important thing. The song is just a collection of
the worst reviews and of course, to prove them right, it is not prog
are heading out on the road as we speak. Besides of the
European continent and with the rumblings from our Icelandic friend
taken into account too; do you plan to tour other continents too this
have no further plan because we want to concentrate on our new album
after the Europe tour. Second is that my solo album is nearly
finished. I did a nice piece of work together with Guy Pratt from
Pink Floyd on bass guitar, Torsten Weber on guitar and the former
RPWL- Drummer Manni Müller. I'm the last of the RPWL solo trilogy
and I’m of course really looking forward to it.
to wrap this interview up; do you have any regrets in your music
I really feel good with all what happened. I can do the music that I
want to do. That is an extraordinary gift and all I ever wanted.
