NEW DRUMMER FLAVIO MEZZODI

For Flavio Mezzodi a childhood dream has come true. "At age 10 I wanted nothing more than playing in a rock band and play all over the world", he states. "And now that dream has become reality". The drummer from Solothurn, where KROKUS is from, is officially the new drummer of the band.

Bassist and producer Chris Von Rohr says it best: "The precision and groove of his drum work is exactly what our band needed. We are extremely happy that we found him."

Three years ago Freddy Steady left the band that had sold over 14 million albums worldwide, establishing KROKUS as the most successful Swiss rock band ever. The new platinum awarded CD "Dirty Dynamite" was recorded with a session drummer. Adds Marc "The Voice" Storace: "Now we are complete again."

Flavio learned his drum skills at the Dante Agostini Drum School in Paris. He also teaches at numerous schools drumming, whenever he is not touring with KROKUS. He played professionally with Swiss acts Stefanie Heinzmann and the band Fox.

Mezzodi grew up listening to KROKUS. One of the first records he ever heard was the band's 1980 "Metal Rendez-Vous" release.

Over the almost four decades time, the band's drumming job has been often vacant. Freddy Steady left the band multiple times. The other Swiss drummer, Dani Crivelli, tragically passed about three weeks ago. Marc Storace further explains: "Flavio is a great human being and musically fits perfectly into our line-up. With him on drums, we will rock with even more power."
Flavio Mezzodi
Ein Kindheitstraum ist wahr geworden. «Ich wollte schon als Zehnjähriger in einer Rockband spielen und die grossen Bühnen dieser Welt entern», sagt Flavio Mezzodi. Staunend fügt er an: «Jetzt habe ich es tatsächlich geschafft.» Der Solothurner ist ab sofort offiziell der neue Schlagzeuger von Krokus. «Er bringt unserer Gruppe genau die Präzision und den Groove, den wir brauchen», sagt Bassist und Produzent Chris von Rohr. «Es ist in jeder Hinsicht eine grosse Freude, dass wir diesen Mann gefunden haben.»

Seit dem Ausstieg von Freddy Steady vor drei Jahren war der Posten am Schlagzeug der mit weltweit 14 Millionen verkaufter Alben erfolgreichsten Schweizer Rockband unbesetzt. Die neue Platin-CD «Dirty Dynamite» spielten Krokus mit einem Session-Drummer ein. «Nun sind wir endlich wieder komplett», sagt Sänger Marc Storace.

Mezzodi hat sein Handwerk an der Dante Agostini Drum School Paris gelernt, erteilt heute selbst an mehreren Schulen Unterricht und hat schon für Stefanie Heinzmann und Mark Fox getrommelt. Er sei mit der Musik von Krokus gross geworden, erinnert er sich. Eine der ersten Platten, die er gehört habe, sei «Metal Rendez-vous» gewesen, die Krokus 1980 veröffentlicht haben.

Der Schlagzeug-Job war bei Krokus während der letzten fast vier Jahrzehnte oft vakant. Steady hat die Band mehrmals verlassen. Der andere Drummer, Daniel Crivelli ist vor drei Wochen tot aufgefunden worden. «Flavio passt menschlich super zu uns», sagt Storace. «Mit ihm werden wir in Zukunft noch kraftvoller rocken.»
