Dear Jo Jonathan friends!
In 2016 and 2017 we were relatively little on tour. The reason was heavy fatalities that hit us out of the blue. In the middle of the preparation for the new, meanwhile 11. Studio CD suddenly and unexpectedly my brother (for many years musical accompanist) Bernhard Walter died, at the age of 58 years. He played alternately guitar, bass and piano. He was one musical backbone of the band. Immediately we were reminded of the year 2003 as during a tour our guitarist and friend Bernhard Mussler only 46 years old died. After that, we could not play live for another year. After Bernhard Walter death left we do not sample, we talked a lot, digging out old pieces by Bernhard and composing pieces for him. This helped us in many ways. When we play he is always with us and sometimes we hear his solos. Bernhard was a funny, humorous, thoughtful, intelligent and kind hearted person. We carry him in our hearts forever.

In autumn, we recorded a live CD with our fans, the best in the world, in Glashütte. Our keyboard player had to go through one family stroke of fate cancel his cooperation at short notice, so we had to search again for a new key player. In Stefan Schöner we have "recovered" him. Stefan already recorded the "HomeStyleCooking" CD and has been in the Band and also in the US with us. Stefan is known to be an excellent musician, solid in all genres between blues, jazz and rock. At Easter we are in the studio, finishing the 11th Jo Jonathan CD and mixing the live recordings from. Just in time for the summer tour she will be released as a double CD. We look forward to the performances and a reunion with you.

Bernhard has been playing since

1973 with me at ICARUS
From 1976 in various dance bands
from 1977 at Melophon

In 1980, we recorded LP LP Vinyl with Melophon, which is still marketed worldwide and has become a herb rock legend.
In 1982 he toured Europe with a disco band and played every day. He came up with 340 performances a year.
From 2008 he played with Jo Jonathan. In between, also in other formations.

Until his death he appeared as a musician. With ANDERSWO he played in 2016 the CD "Stay with you". He played with JO JONATHAN last on October 1, 2016, with ANDERSWO he had his last appearance on the earthly stage.

born on 29.11.1957 in Neuburgweier / Baden
died on 18.11.2016 in Karlsruhe / Baden
