1982: Founding Members Raimund Breitfeld on drums and Steffen Goeres on guitars
|Raimund Breitfeld , Steffen Goeres|
"At that time the electric shavers haven´t been invented yet, the guitars were quite big and a part of the drums missed the shape they nowadays have."
|Raimund Breitfeld - drums, percussion WORLD5|
During his high school days Raimund and his good friend Steffen Goeres performed together in several Rock and Pop bands. Steffen's skills on the guitar was so advanced that he was already doing solo concerts as a teenager. Steffen was so dedicated that he literally slept with his guitar. Raimund couldn´t keep up with Steffen on guitar and since there were very few drummers in their small town and their skills were moderate Raimund found his calling behind the drums. Drum lessons, music academy and the college of music followed and he ended up with a degree as a drummer and music teacher.
