Name: Hank Black
Background: Started my way to the stars by the age
of 6. All mom´s jars and cans was setup like a drum-kit
in front of the TV. Together with Animal I played along with
the intro of "The Muppet Show". This went on for years and
when the 10th pair of knitting-sticks where broken my mom
and dad had enough and bought me a real drum-kit. Then the drum-school
went on and after some years of hard, sweaty hitting on the
drums I joined different bands, from symphonic orchestras
