Prince-Tribute-1200x625

Today I am incredibly sad. A legend is gone – maybe the biggest musician, writer and producer of our times. You all heard the bad news, so, I dont have to get into details, just so much and this is very personal:

Prince was the guy I grew up with, the music I listened to on the radio in the 80s, when I was a little kid and the records I loved when I was a bit older in the 90s. I remember watching a documentary about this guy on MTV, freaking out about the fact he has hundreds, maybe thousands of songs ready to roll. It was so fascinating thats someone could play 40 instruments, when I had a hard time with even one. Also I loved the mentality of creating art every day,  crossing styles, pushing bounderies and of course – he always had the hottest women in his videos…sorry , this was big thing for me as teenager. To me The New Power Generation was a musical revolution in the early 90s, the groove, the beat – so many of todays artists still been heavily influenced by this beat, this funky unique guitar sound and 808 grooves.

Sidey Belt

WWRS was a blast, from at least what I’ve heard :)… I could not make it this year, which makes me really sad as most my radio friends were there and had a fantastic time. Like every year, benztown did the Iron Imager contest.

Years after meeting John Kerber via skype I finally got to know the man behind Howard Stern’s Imaging in person while being in NYC some weeks ago.

I wanted to dig a bit deeper and learn more on how the sound of Howard evolved over the ten years, what was the strategic goal, how is it to work with the man himself and and and…So many questions, so much things to explore and a massive new task waiting for him! Guys, Meet John Kerber!
