Welcome to Metal Digest!

For the first time ever a music magazine is diving into your first times. Well, there’s a first for everything.

Today we are hosting: Black Reuss

First thing you do in the morning.

Sometimes a start with a workout, and sometimes with a cappuccino and a cigarette. No morning without a cappuccino…:-)

The first time you realized you wanted to be a musician.

I think it all started with Elvis Presley when I was a teenager around 12-14. Elvis was the opener to rock for me. As the years went by, it got harder and harder and I was influenced by other artists, but Elvis was the door opener. He was a complete artist. Great songs, a mega performer with incredible charisma. I realised that music is a universal language with which you can reach everyone in the world. That’s what I wanted to do and learn.

The first album you fell in love with.

As I said, with Elvis I disovered Rock. And there has been a lot of Songs from him I was listeinig to. But the first whole Album that I felt in Love was probably Appetite For Destruction of Guns N Roses.

Your first treasured piece of music equipment.

That was a Charvel Predator electric Guitar. I still have it 32 years later. It’s a treasure because my father bought it for me and I still remember how happy he made me with that gift.

The first time you met a music idol.

With that question, a funny story comes up to me. I was 14 years old, and there was a local Band, which I supported. I still have a demo tape signed by the bass player. That was around 1989… today this guy is still a very good friend of mine, and we have played together in a former band I was in, for many years….

Your first YouTube video.

The first person you text when you are in trouble.

That is my wife…
