Born Nov. 13, 1949 in Cuxhaven - Friedrich-Carl-Strasse and lived later in Predoehlstrasse and Reinekestrasse.
school and profession
1957 - 1966: Gorch-Fock-School, Middleschool (Realschule) Cuxhaven.
1966 - 1969: Trainee at the Wasser- und Schifffahrtsamt - Cuxhaven.
From 1970: Lufthansa German Airlines - Hamburg.
Married to a "musical" wife, two grown up sons.
Early musical interest (drums) through his eight-years-older brother Siggi Froehlich, who was drummer at Karl-Heinz Steinhoffs "Dacapo-Trio".
1963/64: first Beat-Band "The Five Scamps" and later on "The Spacemen" with Hartwig "Appel" Hoepcke. Further Bands in Cuxhaven till 1969: "New Style Crusaders" and "Road".
With his first camera, a Kodak-Instamatic, the essential Beat-Concerts in Cuxhaven were documented. Within the following years the enormous collection of photos, concert-posters, news-articles, records etc. was growing (a matter of course still holding everything until today).
1966 - 1969: summer-holidays in England, every year, close to London. Lots of concert-visits at the "Marquee-Club" (London-Wardour St.) and many photo-shots of the popular Bands of that time.
Since 1970 living in Hamburg: has visited many Rock-Concerts at the capital of Music-Germany.
In the 70s the old passion for original and still existing steam-engines and miniatur-trains came back.
I don`t make activemusic any more but the fascination for it is still there. To write the "CUX `66-Story" together with Christian Mangels and Erwin Priess has been my central point of interest since 2001. It`s thrilling to get in contact again with all the friends of the 60s!
The most spectacular and impressive event was the reunion of the original "Spacemen" on January 31, 2004.
