Year in Review – The year has the quotes, we have the grooves
Drummer Marco Minnemann translated sentences of the year 2019 into grooves. Philipp Amthor in 12/8, Trump in 4/4, Strache as swing!

In May 2019, the so-called Ibiza affair ended the political career of right-wing FPÖ politician Heinz-Christian Strache. At the time, in his defense, he argued, "Yes, it was a drunken story," and pretty much everything has been said about that. What has not yet come to light: "Yes, it was a drunken story" is a sparkling clean 4/4 time, and it even swings when played on the drums, the ZEIT ONLINE culture department now knows very well called source!

We sent some quotes of the year in original sound to musician Marco Minnemann in San Diego. He treated everyone like a rhythm: Greta Thunberg's indictment of the UN, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer's controversial statement about internet rules, Angela Merkels Words of thanks after Andrea Nahles' resignation – the year gave us numerous quotes, Minnemann made grooves out of it, 13/16 measures or 7/8 or triplet 5/4.

Marco Minnemann, born in Hanover in 1970, has received multiple awards for his virtuoso playing from international drum magazines. Few German musicians are considered luminaries in this field, he is one of them. He started his career in the Munich crossover band Freaky Fukin Weirdos, he also played for the band H-Blockx, for Udo Lindenberg, Kreator and for Nena. He has been living in San Diego for several years, among other things he was a drummer for the guitar legends Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert. He now plays in the fusion trio The Aristocats and the art rock band The Sea Within, publishes textbooks and DVDs. Crooked time signatures give him great pleasure, and the year 2019 obviously had enough to offer.
