Jan Dildei
For me personally, making music primarily shows three important qualities: First, it's kind of meditative - dive into the stream and forget about the rest of the world for a while. Second, music enables me to communicate with my fellow members on a level which is beyond speech and linguistic meaning - quite restorative and marvelously clear. And finally, music is simply straight- forward - you get out what you play in. Or in a less overblown manner: It's only cool if it's rock & roll!

Musical Influences Due to my longtime "career" as a cover musician, I have probably picked up a little bit from every rea- sonably popular bass player of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, but the follow- ing artists have particularly affec- ted my musical development in one way or another: Duff McKagan, Joey DeMaio, Chris Squire, Geddy Lee and John Myung (in order of appear- ance).
