It was during the last Kraan-tour, October 13, 2001, Stadthalle Betzdorf, we are the opening act Janis, it was great to play on stage with Kraan..., but when Borgward sounded, we miss suddenly the bassdrum..., what was happened? Jan Fride`s drumpedal was broken ("The first time since 30 years" he later said), he had not a substitute pedal, but - thank God - Kraan played this evening by way of excption with an opening act..., and so my brother Christoph and me runs behind the stage in our car and take Christoph`s drumpedal to Jan..., the most of people doesn`t notice this stressy minutes...

Fred's wall The notorius Kraan fan Fred Bauer wrote:
"I took this pic in the Idstein backstage room at a Hattler Band gig on 20th of march, 2004. Hellmut Hattler told me, that he had paintet it 1994 (!) during a Tab Two gig as a joke (Kraan never played on 31.12.2001 in Idstein) "
