called "Rubber Souls".

This three-piece-band even recorded a single ("Paradise
For Sale") for EMI.


Epitaph  1971-1978

-Between 1971 and 1978 Klaus was the guitarist for the
German-British band "Epitaph" with members Cliff Jackson
(guitar, vocals), Jim Mc Gillivray (drums) and Bernie

In late 1970 Epitaph signed a recording deal with Polygram.
Many European and US concerts followed shortly after their first album had been released.
The band broke up for a short time in 1975, after their last US tour. Klaus became a studio musician and became a hired gun for various bands ("Guru Guru", "Karthago", "Jutta Weinhold Band", etc).

Jane  since 1986

In 1986 Klaus joined Jane. The line-up was the same as it is today: Klaus Walz, Peter Panka, Werner Nadolny and
Charly Maucher.

Jane played various concerts and released a live album on the PolyGram/Metronome label called "Live ´89". Charly
Maucher moved to Canada shortly after the albums release.
Jane, it seems, never found the right replacement.
Numerous bass players had been recruited and fired.


Here are a few pictures from that time:
