Lobo Loco (Wolf Schweizer-Gerth)
Crazy for music! Playing Piano, Organ, Guitar, Bluesharph and with a Roland JV.-1080 worldwide intruments over MIDI
And playing in the Band Krude Mischung.
... come from a small village in southern Germany. Namend "Mittelstadt" in the "Neckar" valley.
The little waterfall from the creek "Märzenbach" flowing into the river Neckar.
... in the factory outlet city Metzingen I had at the age of 8-10 years piano lessons.
... a choleric problem drinker was my teacher. He had quick made the opinion that I will be not talented and very lazy.
... as a day dreamer I spend my school time in the "Metzinger Gymnasium" on the backmost place in the classroom.
... after 20 months alternative military service in the psychiatry I was graduated for studying geologiy in "Tübingen" (Southern Germany)
... living at this time in a shared appartement in Reutlingen Jakobstreet with Freddy the King, the big kahnua and Peter (later Banddrummer in the Hippie House Jam Band)
... at this time I got my screen name "Lobo Loco"
The shared appartement time during studying, eight years on "Jakobstraße"
... 30 years old, I tried studying cinematic at the filmacademie in Potsdam Babelsberg, but it failed ...
... pending to this I made more music
... so I took the second chance playing piano at the piano of my mother, ... without any plan ... straight on ...
this time without any notes ... and because my old brother have a western guitar I even started playing guitar.
... with my first little casio keyboard I made 1993 my first Lobo Loco Hit ">>play Sofa Origin Version"
... yeah, as a result of the Sofasong I meet my wife
... today she still like this song very much
... since nearby 20 years we've been happy marriaged (but this is another story...)
... actually I've playing more and more different instruments:
Fender Resonator, Hammond XB, cajon, bongo, bluesharphs, Yamaha epiano, Akai Miniak, Korg Kaossilator, Korg Wavedrum ...
... actually with MIDI keys I play with the manifold Samples from the Roland JV Cards
... with this I can play saxophon, clavinet, brasses, bagpipe, strings ... even fascinating
... it sounds very naturally
... Recording I make with overdubbing (with a Zoom R16)
My main inspirating musicians are:
"Champion Jack Dupree" (Boogie Woogie Piano)
"Bruce Cockburn" (Canadian Folk Guitar)
"John Hurt" (Delta Blues Guitar)
"Rory Gallagher & Lou Martin" (Irish Tour super Guitar with excellent keys)
"Beatles" (I musn't say anything here)
"Daniel Amos" (Creativness and own Style Arrangements)
"Tangerine Dream" (Sperical Synthesizer worlds)
"Chick Corea" (Great Impro Jazz Piano)
"Commodores" (Super Funky Music)
"Helge Schneider" (Cool comedian and jazz organ musician)
"Vangelis" (Wonderfull synthesizer melodys)
"Schwoissfuass & Grachmusikoff" (Great musicians, perfekt combining brass music with rock and having fun)
... and shurley my friend and band companion Kieli. Without him I would never going on making bandmusic.
... they're still more and more fabulous musicians ... but I don't wanna bore you with endless lists... ;-)
