Can you tell us a bit about your history in music? In my youth life I followed Bands on tour and tried to get more into touring. So I first started with merchandising for bands (1987) in my free time (I was trainee in a total different job) . In 1990 I toured more as Merchandiser, Tourmanager, Driver; whatever I could get as a job in that time. In 1995 I moved as a booker to Hamburg. I was booking artists like John Watts (Fisher Z), Cultured Pearls, Moloko, Faithless and others. In 2011, I started working for FKP Scorpio with bands like Caro Emerald, Simple Minds, Steven Wilson. Some newer in my opinion “hot” Bands are: Creeper, Marmozets, Roo Panes, Velvet Volume…
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? I really love music, but can’t play more than a Kazoo… So I had to deal with it and start working.
What are your favourite Danish acts? Volbeat in the beginning. Velvet Volume now.
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? Puuuh… Rammstein because of the best show ever? Cro Mags because this band was an important step in my life!
