1972 Deep Purple Made in Japan It started for me with listening to Jon Lord on the Hammond, then I knew how I wanted to play my keyboard. Deep Purple has been a major influence for me.
1973 Alice Cooper Billion dollar babies When I was 12 years old (1971) I first heard work from Alice Cooper, it was love at first bite. I have been following his work since then on.
1975 Pink Floyd Whish you were here Pink Floyd was the first band to introduce me to symphonic-rock, I like this album together with 'the Wall' the most. The albums by Roger Waters are real gems.
1976 Rush All the world's a stage Started as hardrock form Canada they changed to progrock and are now back on the 'heavy'-side. I have all their albums.
1978 Tony Banks A Curious feeling Great keyboard-player, also his Genesis work is great to listen to.
1980 Supertramp Paris Great symphonic album, showed me how to play the piano and how to use string-arrangements.
1981 Saga Silent knight Prog-rock also from Canada, Saga had a great influence on my keyboard playing. I'm proud to have played as their support-act with The Last Detail.
1989 Glenn Hughes From now on... This singer/bassplayer from Deep Purple is still the voice of rock. I Have a lot of his albums.
1994 Black Sabbath Headless cross I like the old 'Ozzy' Sabbath but the albums with Tony Martin are also my favorits. Great voice en great drumming by Cozy Powell.
2000 Steve Walsh Glossallia I'm a great fan of this singer and all the works of his band Kansas.
