Vu klengem un war ech begeeschtert vu Musek s Instrumenter. Stoung iergendeppes do wat en Toun gemaach huet, hat ech meng Fanger drun.
Ëm den Alter vu 7 Joer krut ech an der Vakanz a Spuenien eng kleng Kannergittar geschenkt, an hunn deemols mäin éicht Geld mat der Musek verdéngt. Ech souz op enger Traap mat der Gittar ze klimperen, an Leit di lanscht gaange sinn, hu mir Geld ginn.  

Doheem hunn ech ëmmer mat all Musek wou ech fonnt hunn, matgesongen.

1992 hunn ech mir dunn eng elektresch Gittar mat engem Mesa Boogy Kaiber 50 Verstäerker kaf. Super Geschir. 

Nodeems ëmmer méi Leit, déi mech emol sangen héieren hunn, mir gesot hunn, ech soll Sänger ginn, hunn ech mech méi op de Gesang konzentréiert, eng Gesang s Anlag kaf, an eng Band gesicht.

 

Di éicht Band war eng vun Iron Maiden, Helloween a Queensryche beaflosst Band, mat ganz gudde Museker. Leider koum et mat där Band just zu engem Concert, wou mir ënnert dem Numm "Silver Rain" opgetruede sinn. Et goufe Lidder gespillt ewéi "Revolution, First Love, Different Worlds an There's No Justice".

Dono gouf eng Band mam Numm "Damn Bullets" gegrënnt, wou gréisstendeels déi Lidder gespillt goufen, déi ech an der Zwëschenzäit geschriwwen hat.

Titelen ewéi Apology, Murderer, Mortar 81, The Endless Grey an Bad Dreams (vum Gittarist geschriwwen).

No e puer Jam sessions mat engem top Drummer aus dem Minett, hunn ech mech entscheet mäi Gléck am Ausland ze sichen, a sinn am Abrëll 1997 mat mengem VW T3 op London gefuer, wou ech an enger Schoul "The Power house"  Gesang s Kueren geholl hunn.

Séier hunn ech Uschloss a verschiddene Bands fonnt. Di éischt huet "I" geheescht, déi awer spéider an "The Bards" ëmgenannt gouf.

1999 sinn ech dunn an eng Band mam Numm "Dazed" komm, déi just covers gespillt huet. Spéider ass och dës Band ëmbenannt ginn, an zwar an "Loaded".

2000 hunn ech och nach mam Gittarist vu mengem eegene Projet "ISIKING" eng Band mam Numm Sex, Drugs & Spandex" gegrënnt, mat där mir awer nie en Optrëtt haten, well ech Ufank 2001 ganz zeréck op Lëtzebuerg gaang sinn.

Leider kann ech mech net méi genau un d'Zäitperioden erënneren, mee zeréck zu Lëtzebuerg, hunn ech eng Zäit mat Fokus (Cover Band) gespillt, mäin eegene Projet "ISIKING" weidergefouert, e puer Joer och an der Band "Seven Seasons" (Cover Band) gesongen, a verschidde kleng Projete probéiert.

ISIKING huet sech mat der Zäit zu engem Projet entwéckelt, wou mir 1/3 eege Stécker, an 2/3 Covere gespillt hunn. Leider änneren sech de Leit hir Prioritéite mat der Zäit, sou dass ISIKING elo op Äis läit.

From a very young age on, I've been enthusiastic about misical instruments. Couldn't let my fingers of anything making sound.
Around the age of 7, on holiday in Spain, I got a children's guitar as a present, and it was then I earned my first money with music. I sat down on the stairway of a building with my guitar, and people passing by gave me money. Obviously they were feeling sorry for me.  

At home, I always sang along with the songs that came on the radio, and the records present in my home.

1992 I bought my first electric guitar (a pretty unknown make from Germany) and an amp (Mesa Boogy Cliber 50 combo) Both guit and amp where high quality for a beginner. 

Afer more and mor people who heard me sing were telling me that I could be a singer in a band, I kept concentrating more on improving my vocal capacities, bought a small PA with mics, and started looking for a band.

The 1st band I joined was influenced by Iron Maiden, Helloween and Queensryche, and had brilliant musicians. Unfortunately I had only one gig with that band, which was called "Silver Rain". We played songs like "Revolution, First Love, Different Worlds and There's No Justice".

The second band I was in, was called "Damn Bullets". We mostly played the songs I had written, like Apology, Murderer, Mortar 81, The Endless Grey and Bad Dreams.

After a few jam sessions with an international drummer from the south of Luxembourg, I decided to find my luck in the UK., where I stayed from april 1997 to march 2001. I left Luxembourg in my VW T3, to get some musical education at "The Power house" in Acton (SW-Lonson).

I quickly joined bands, of which the first one was called "I", later called "The Bards".

1999 I joined a cover band called "Dazed". Later, this band changed the name to "Loaded".

In 2000, with the guitarist of my band ISIKING, I founded the band "Sex, Drugs & Spandex".

Unfortunately I never had a gig with this band, as I returned to Luxembourg ins the beginning of 2001.

I can't recall the exact time periods, but back in Luxembourg i was with Fokus (Cover Band) for some time, kept working on my own band "ISIKING", played a few years with the coverband "Seven Seasons", and tried a few other projects.

With time, ISIKING evoved into a band that played 1/3 originals, and 2/3 covers.

As people's priorities change, ISIKING as a band is on ice at the moment.
