That’s a classic one I often ask, but I’m always curious to know how you discovered the music you play now ? Randy Rich: Well, in one way we were lucky growing up in the 80’s. There was still a lot of Rock’n’Roll in TV and radio even in East Germany. One day I saw…

Dawn Shipley A french poet has once said that «the future belongs to women». I guess he was talking about the future of rockabilly?!
