27 years or nothing
"Oase", Düsseldorf, 1962
Gunter Hampel is playing.
A new altoplayer is with him - stumpy, a roundhead, a sharp nose, blackbearded.
At the end of the night I sit in.
Courageous, most of them leave the stage, the roundhead stays.
Quite a wild duo.
The colliflowereared bouncer drags me from the stage.
That was it.
"Porticus", Frankfurt, 1989
We are on stage again.
Play as if nothing had happened.
The breaks won't be so long any more.
We promise.
