At that second they had been on tour in France. The primary (adverse) attempt was in Lille (France). The second and the third had been performed in Belgium. After a tough work in the meantime, I used to be straight engaged after the third attempt by the band for a tour in Europe. It was late 1974. The day after, I settled down in Hanover in North Germany. At first I solely spoke English with them, the German language got here later. My acceptance within the band was good besides perhaps to start with the language barrier.”
