"2022! There it is! A new year! Wishing you and your loved ones a fantastic, healthy, prosperous 2022! Corona is still raging. Now with its latest variant "Omicron" (Sounds like the new hope of Black Metal). It´s still a very difficult time for musicians/artists but we have to hang in there and I hope that the situation will be much better at the end of the year! Fingers crossed!

We´re still working on the new Pink Cream 69 record. Very pleased with the songwriting and pre-production! It rocks but at the same time, there are also some new "colours" added to the PC69 picture. More on that hopefully very soon!

The next "Guitar Stories" single "Nachtklänge Pt.II" (Nightsounds Pt.II) will be released on all streaming services, February 11th. It´s probably the most progressive,adventurous piece of music I have written so far! Outstanding drums by my old pal Alex Landenburg as well!

I also did a new interview with an Argentinian webzine which you can read on my Social Media channels. Or just visit metalworld.com.ar and you can find it directly on the main page.

Alright, enough for now! Have a great start into the new year and thanks again for all your interest in what I do! I appreciate it!

Best, Marco

"I hope you are enjoying this beautiful autumn season. I have always loved this time of the year and right now as I´m writing this new update, Hamburg is covered in gorgous,glorious golden leaves.

Currently, I´m deep into recording guitars for the new, upcoming Pink Cream 69 album. I have a good feeling that it´s gonna be a great album, full of hooks, great riffs and epic melodies. There is still some work to do though. Hang in there 🙂

In September, I also had a fantastic time at the famous Reeperbahn Festival here in Hamburg. It was so good to meet fellow musicians, friends from the industry in real life and not just on Social Media. I was there to present some incredible PRS Guitars (Photo attached below). I also played on stage for the great guitar store - No.1. No.1 is one of the best guitar stores in the world. If you are in Hamburg, make sure to go there! I also made some videos with my buddy Thomas Blug which you can find on Youtube. Alright, back to work! I still need to record some more overdubs and solos for the new PC69 record! Have a wonderful autumn season, stay healthy and I wish you all the best!"

„Delighted to announce the Pink Cream 69 signing with legendary label „SPV/Steamhammer“. New studio album announced for spring 2022 release.

With this signing, Pink Cream 69 have returned to the Steamhammer/SPV fold almost 18 years after the release of their 2004 album ‘Thunderdome’. Alfred Koffler is delighted: “Since ‘Thunderdome’, the contact with Steamhammer`s product manager Olly Hahn, who did a great job back then, has never ceased. That`s why we have absolute trust in SPV and feel that we are in good hands. We’re confident that our collaboration will be a fruitful one again.”

Olly Hahn is also thrilled with this successful coup: “In Pink Cream 69, one of the strongest and most charismatic German hard rock bands of the past thirty years, is returning to the Steamhammer roster. We’re proud and very happy and look forward to the coming months, which will definitely be very exciting.“

Dear friends, fans and followers!

What a year! A year we certainly will never forget! It truly was a bizarre year but for me personally definitely NOT a lost year. I learned so much, had so much time to dig even deeper into music and the guitar, spent more time in nature, tried more different coffee brands, appreciated silence (sometimes)...but also missed airports, airport food (crazy..I know!), even Jetlag, the stage, festivals, exhibitions, conversations in real life, face to face backstage with people all around the world etc etc...

Well, let’s make the best of it, stay positive, wear a mask and hope for a more „dynamic“ 2021!

Wishing you and your loved ones all the very best! Especially health which is -as we all experienced again this year- the most important!

Hope to see some of you in 2021!

"Hello Ladies & Gentlemen and welcome to my brand new website!

I hope you will enjoy the content of my musical journey. As you know and experience, COVID-19 is changing so much in the music world right now. Gigs, tours, festivals are all postponed to 2021 and even 2022. I joined the band PINK CREAM 69 in January and we were so looking forward to some great shows but it is what it is now and we all have to make the best out of this situation.
So, what´s actually happening in my life right now?

I´m enjoying some nice walks in the countryside, listening to music, playing a lot of guitar (as always), constantly working on my solo guitar album "Guitar Stories", preparing clinics for/with PRS Guitars in Frankfurt and Walldorf, Germany and also doing online lessons with highly motivated students. To get in touch with me for online lessons, please visit the "Guitar Stories - The lessons" area. Looking forward to hearing from you!

This new website will be updated regularly, so make sure not to miss any new guitar stories. Wishing you and your families all the very best and now....it´s time for a coffee!
