Fifty-two years ago the Stones discovered their sympathy for the devil

while I strolled around the streets of Maxvorstadt and Schwabing in Munich busy to master exams, the May revolts escalated in Paris, Berlin and later in Prag. The US National Guards massacred dozens of students protesting agains a cruel war in Vietnam when the Stones came out with this incredible song. 

 

The Rolling Stones are still alive and creative

I’m living now on the countryside: no underground, no elevators or planes over my head. Sun is shining, birds are back from Africa. The garden full of flowers, black birds chirping, children sing, dogs bark and babies laughing while life goes on like in the good old times of yesterday. We can’t go to town and people from there or anywhere can’t come here. A kind of premature armistice between man and nature.
I suppose the Stones have to suffer under lockdown conditions in their humble two-bedroom flats in the suburbs of London. This song is a jelly fish, a social reality kept together by a mix of images roaming the empty streets of quarantined global metropitan areas through a fish eyes lense.

 

This song saved my life twice

Stay home, last safe room left.

 

“One World: Together at Home,” the prime-time special produced by Global Citizen that was broadcast Saturday night on CBS, NBC and ABC and online. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, late-night representatives from each network, were the hosts, toggling awkwardly between deadpan comedy and earnestness. Lady Gaga helped select the musical lineup, which included Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Taylor Swift, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, the Rolling Stones, Elton John and more — many more

 

It was Beatle George Harrison who organised the first non-profit charity concert

 

Remember 1971 when George Harrison organized the first global attended charity concert with Ravi Shankar – so glad it’s available on Youtube

 

 

Back to the roots

“My Generation” war ein Song der britischen Band “The Who”, der ab 1967 bei einer Party so selbstverständlich war wie “Number 9” von den “Beatles. Ein paar Jahre später war ich fasziniert und inspiriert von “The Who Sell Out” und dann kam “Tommy”: “See me, hear me, touch me, feel me!” Eine tolle Schallplatte. Dann kam der Film von Ken Russel. Im Juli 1974 lud mich Giséle ein mit ihr den Film in einer Nachmittagsvorstellung in einem Kino in Brügge nahe einem der berühmten Kanäle anzusehen. 104 Minuten Feuerwerk. Als wir das Kino im hellen Sonnenlicht verließen waren wir beide ausgebrannt. Wir fühlten uns beide in unseren Gefühlen stark angesprochen und kämpften an unserer gemeinsamen Trümmerfront auf der Terrasse einer Bar über dem glitzernden Wasser in der Nähe.

 

Und Wunder über Wunder: den Film gibt’s seit zehn Monaten auf Youtube im Original, optisch schlechter, aber akustisch guter Kopie mit spanischen Untertiteln.

 

 

Requiem für Herbert Lachner 
Mein musikalischer Freund starb letzte Woche

 

 

 

My friend died two years ago, but our friendship is still alive via facebook.
So I dedicate this song to him.

 

My first Moon Walk

 

We enjoyed watching the first man landing on the moon July 20, 1969 on television at the Kuby mansion in Munich while a German rockband performed in the basement and under garden trees the joints went from hand to hand like in Haight Street, San Francisco.

 

Once upon a time autumn 1956 I became an altar boy and had to learn Latin to serve liturgy of Catholic church. Took some time, but after I got acquinted myself to the job I began to like my position on the right wing of the altar especially my duty to serve bread, wine and water. Nevertheless I always felt relieved when Father Kleidorfer started the farwell song:
