1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Blind Man's Gun" and is there any meaning behind it?

On a beach in summer holiday with an acoustic guitar, selftaught or by means of musical education. We developed our sound gradually over the last 12 years. Everything on „11“ :-) We play how we like to play, fast or slow there are no rules. Influenced by Rock and metal bands of the 70 - 80´s.

There was this song „Into the deep“ by Kenny Wayne Shepard where he is singing about a „blind man with a gun“. This line was the origin of our band name. The meaning to it is that we play and compose music as we see fit. We are open minded regarding sound and style as long as it rocks.

2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

To be part of our music.

3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

Heavy Rock and Metal with a 70 - 80´s touch.

Same to everybody, gig cancellation, rehearsal stop. We worked at home and released a couple of singles.

Female fronted heavy rock is finally on the rise. Of course mainstream heavy rock is even more popular the our niche music.

7. What's the current music scene like there in Germany?

Rock and Pop music are the most frequently heard music genres in Germany. There are many festivals, from small to Wacken. Btw we have played Wacken festival in 2022 and 2023!

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

We barely get anything out of streaming services, so fuck it.

9. What's next for Blind Man's Gun?

We are busy with writing songs and are going to produce them. Hopefully our piggy bank is filled enough to do another video. Right now we started a promotion and hope to get more gigs.

Horns and glasses up to peace, love and rock´n´roll.
