I have worked as a journalist and blogger since 1994 in Germany and on overseas assignments, mostly in war zones. Having seen the dark side of the earth, I have decided that music is a much more enjoyable subject to cover. I operate a second blog linking books and music I like.
All information on this blog is carefully researched, all opinions are my own. So are the copyrights on all texts and pictures unless explicitly mentioned otherwise. And so are any factual errors. This blog will be updated twice a week, usually on Tuesday and Thursday. Additional, special posts about current events will be published at my discretion. There is so much wonderful music around!
If you like the published posts and pictures, you may donate whatever amount you see appropriate to reward the creative work of mine. This blog is not being sponsored, subsidized, paid for or financially assisted by any record label or artist management company. So far Big Music has not shown up with Big Money. And now click on that link! I have a family to feed.
On copyright and liability issues
None of my posts may be reproduced in their entirety without my explicit authorization. You are however encouraged to share links to my posts via social networks or e-mail.
All links are provided in good faith. I decline all liability for links to pirated recordings or content that might be considered offending or unsuited for minors. I provide links to Spotify, Amazon or iTunes not because I support streaming, but to provide readers with a legal possibility to listen to music samples. Please buy CDs or vinyl records.
One last warning: Occasionally I will make fun of myself in what I write. I trust your intelligence to find out when to laugh. Other than those parts, this blog is a dead serious issue.
