In addition to be the talented lead guitarist of Blind Guardian, Olbrich André has also enjoyed success as a child in the 70s. Indeed, his mother being a photographer, she took pictures of him that have served for a fashion catalog for kids!
Born into a family of artists, Andrew has quickly had a passion for hard work: "From my mother I inherited the inexhaustible energy to be creative. And my father gave me the musicality in the cradle." confides André.
Who says new tour said necessarily new bootlegs that start to bloom everywhere on the net, for those who do not know what it is, I recall that the bootlegs are mostly unofficial live recordings made by fans and the sound quality is less good than a live.
