Your own text if you want to tell the world something else: A Liverpool coach once asked whether football was a matter of life or death, said that it was much more. That is music to me. I could talk about it days on end, listen to it without interruption and write about it every day. Nearly no musical boundaries to my taste but my main focus is still the darker side of stuff, full of emotions and not denying the reality we live in.
