Today when I was young

„There's no such thing as canceling a gig, it's either hospital or death,“ my 86-year-old father-in-law Armin explains to me. His humor caries a mischievousness that only musicians have who have been on stage for decades like him. Armin has worked as a pianist and arranger in East Germany for the stars of his time. Nevertheless, there is some truth in his arsenal of musicians' sayings. Once he snuck out of the hospital to give a concert with his band. When I asked him if he would like to retire, Armin quotes German humorist Loriot: „Sorry, this is my first retirement. I'm still rehearsing.“
