I developed this homepage as I realised life is not eternal (I´m 61 years old now, 2015). As many of the musicians I played with has passed away lately I compile my music in this page.

Where does music come from?
Music comes from: SUFFERING, HOPE and JOY just like life i
n general. Do you agree?

The site will be updated regulary, so please keep an eye.
