Catch Gerald Grohmann interview with Hugh Cornwell on KRUU FM.

Hugh Cornwell is a British Musician, Singer Songwriter who had huge success during the eighties with the band The Stranglers being one of the premier bands in Britain alongside bands like the police and the clash. Despite their huge success in Europe scoring 23 top 40 singles and Albums the Stranglers remained largely unknown in the US. A phenomenon Hugh explained with their reluctance doing the extensive touring that would be necessary to become really popular in the US.

Hugh left the Stranglers in 1990 pursuing a solo career.  Even so he could not reclaim the success of the Stranglers, he remains as one off the most revered and respected musicians on the British island.

Since about five years Hugh is touring the US regularly and I was lucky enough to catch him on his last tour in Minneapolis. I regard myself extremely lucky for this opportunity to have this conversation and I am sharing it with you tonight in my show. So join me for this one hour with one of the most fascinating Musicians on today's Music scene.

Klaus WalzThis Monday I am broadcasting an interview with Klaus Walz from the German band Jane. Klaus Walz is one of the most important protagonists in the German music scene since the last 40 years.

After performing in various amateur formations he joind the british german band epitaph in 1970. In late 1970 Epitaph signed a recording deal with Polygram. Many European and US concerts followed shortly after their first album had been released.

The band broke up for a short time in 1975, after their last US tour. Klaus became a studio musician and became a hired gun for various bands ("Guru Guru", "Karthago", "Jutta Weinhold Band", etc).

In 1986 Klaus joined Jane Jane is active untill today with some interruptions during the nineties. The Band released a couple of albums since the late nineties and is back on the road with growing success since 2002 The line-up was until Peter Pankas Death in 2007: Klaus Walz, Peter Panka, Werner Nadolny and Charly Maucher. Jane remains as one of the most loved respected Bands in Germany and I regard myself as very fortunate for this oportunity to talk to one of the key personalities in the German rock scene.

On June the 5th, I am starting a series of shows concentrating on the German bandEroc Grobschnitt. Part of this will be a three-hour interview that I had with Eroc. Eroc was Drummer and creative Mastermind of Grobschnitt from the beginning in 1970 untill 1983. In 1983 he left the band at a time when he had achieved everything he wished for as a performing Artist. Since his departure from Grobschnitt he is concentrating on the technicial aspects as a successfull producer in the eighties and since the nineties as a high profile expert for mastering. He remains as one of the most reputed protagonists of the German and the international musicscene and I regard myself very fortunate for the opportunity to have this long and in depth conversation about his career in general and Grobschnitt in particular.
