Welcome to my website!
It all began in 1978 when I was ten years old - with STAR WARS, of course. Over the years I collected more and more of JOHN WILLIAMS' works, both on record and CD, and when I started this website in 2001, I realized that I was not alone with my love for great music. Since then, some of my fellow JOHN WILLIAMS fans have actually become my friends.
My collection has grown considerably since I first presented it on the internet. My thanks to everybody who offered trades, delivered information or gave advice - it's refreshing to know that so many people out there are joined by their love for the music of JOHN WILLIAMS.
After 42 years of being a fan of the man and his music, I was finally fortunate enough to attend one of his concerts - the marvellous Vienna Concert with the Wiener Philharmoniker in January 2020. Luckily, I was joined by my good friends Miguel, Jos, Romao and Peio and consider the JOHN WILLIAMS weekend one of the most beautiful experiences of my life as a fan.
And then John Williams came to Germany! In October 2021 I saw my friends Miguel and Romao again in Berlin and we attended a concert I never expected to happen - John Williams conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker. A perfect night. Thank you, Maestro!
This website is dedicated to Miguel, Jos, Eric, Peio and Romao.
