Helmut Schartlmüller

Name: Helmut Schartlmüller

Lives: Vienna

Instrument: Bass

Musical beginnings: Musical late starter (was previously a football goalkeeper), began to play music when I was 15, felt immediately attracted to the bass, autodidact, ears open and learning by doing is the motto, my 2 year stay in LA had a great influence.

Career highlights: My absolute highlight is still playing in Hubert von Goisern's band. The gold and platinum awards for our last production are a highlight in a highlight. The forthcoming Brenna Tuats tour is another highlight. Things are bubbling over with highlights at the moment. Others include: Short People, Pogo, Die Päpste, Madrid de los Austrias, Hubertus Hohenlohe, Russkaja, Nigel Hayes, Sandra Pires, Boris Bukowsky, Hansi Lang ... It's also worth mentioning that I played on Thieves and Poets by John McLaughlin.

Favourite music: Decisions, decisions! But if I must: Foo Fighters, (early) Red Hot Chili Peppers, Miles Davis, Air, Beatles, Jaco Pastorius, Queens of the Stone Age. Zoot Woman, Police, Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Frank Zappa, The Meters, Cameron, El Agujetas, Radiohead.

If I hadn't become a musicians ... I still would have been a musician. It's more fun with an audience, but I enjoy playing just for myself too. Career alternatives would then probably have been something in the world of multimedia. I'm already active in this respect when time allows. I could also imagine a bike rental business in South India, or a diving school in Thailand or Bali.
