To all Forum Members:
Alex is the great European Jazz Drummer - from Danemark. Played with Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Eddie Gomez and all the other Greats. I had the chance to meet him and his lovely wife Ane here in Switzerland. He even came down into my drum-room in my house - after dinner of course - tried out some drums and suddenly felt in love with one of my cymbals that I received from Michael Paiste himself - a flatride.
I had the idea, that this cymbal is in better hands with him and so he accepted my present. After some time I see a video with Alex - and he really played my cymbal on it.... the video is here:
Again Alex and Ane, take care and hopefully see you very soon again in Switzerland...
Aw, thanks Bernhard. It's a pleasure to be here. What a friendly bunch of people you surround yourself with in here. I might get addicted ...
Ane and I often talk about our visit at your place which was soooo nice. We are probably the only married couple in the world who included a visit to the Paiste factory and the founder of Drummerworld .... in our honeymoon!!!! (priorities, right)
For all of you out there who haven't met Bernhard let me tell you he is a GREAT guy with the most lovable and wonderful family ... and well, a BEAUTIFUL flat ride! I can never thank you enough for that, Bernhard. I love it!
Oh, and one more thing about this guy: He's a great drummer!!!!!
All my best to you and the family
Alex (and from Ane too)
