Mike was born in Munich (Germany) in the year in which the Rolling Stones were established and Marilyn Monroe died. Both, especially Keith Richards indirectly influenced his musical style. "Yes, definitely It´s only Rock'n'Roll, but I like it!". Mike connects not only the same zodiac sign with Marilyn Monroe, but also as the first two letters of the first and last name: "MM". At the age of seven, Mike got his first acoustic guitar. He learned to play the guitar by jamming to the songs from his favorite records. Stuff like "Honky Tonk Woman", "Brown Sugar", "Jumping Jack Flash", "Smoke On The Water", "This Flight Tonight"... At the age of twelve Mike already travelled through the country with his first band.
