Hans Frommer - Home recordings/Stags - 7" (GER./1978)
HANS FROMMER played in many different bands since he was 14. He per-formed gigs in American GI music clubs in Germany (around Frankfurt a. M.) ever since 1969. Ten years later he released his first LP with his band THE STAGS: "Don't Shoot!" (1979) and also
released a single: "Keep On Movin'/Please Don't Go" in 1978, which is now rare as hell.
The greatest hour of the STAGS probably came, when
they had the chance to open for HERMAN BROOD and INGA RUMPF in a music club, called Wartburg, in Wiesbaden in 1977.
More different band projects followed (e.g. FURY'S RIDE and MAD
MAGIC in the early 1990s), playing mostly Rock'n'Roll and Blues/Blues-Rock cover songs, but HANS also started to write more and more of his own material. In 1996 HANS recorded a CD with FAME in Offenbach, featuring Rock'n'Roll songs of the 1950s, but he quit playing live in 1999 and is now recording songs all by his own in his little home recording studio in Stockstadt, Aschaffenburg. "It's only Rock'n'Roll... but I Like it..." (quote Hans Frommer). And so do we!
Listening to his new and old songs, we are once again reminded of now forgotten bands like the DOOBIE BROTHERS, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS or the STEVE MILLER BAND. Enjoy and check out Hans' site!
