Erich played guitar for Defender and Nightmission. He made a CD with Defender, “Hard Works” in 1995. When he moved away from Düsseldorf (Erich reliably informed me, after he’d stumbled upon his who’s who entry here – I believe it is near to Cologne …) He played for a (very) short time with SIX ’01 before being rediscovered thirteen years later, by Thomas, drunk at a party, where he was aparently quickly convinced to join the band.
Erich is heavily influenced by Metallica.
He joined Wildscrew in March 2014.
