Like almost every year we are spending our summer holidays in Montreux during the time of the Jazz Festival. It is the greatest festival in Europe thanks to the founder Claude Nobs.

On the second day , while we were biking along the lake, I got a phone call from Claude asking if I could be jamming that evening with Billy Cobham, before the concert of Roxy Music. The opening act ‘Melissa auf der Maur’ couldn’t make their flight from Canada, and Claude needed a ‘replacement’. I hadn’t seen Billy for 25 years and immediately liked the idea.

Claude called Billy , who lives in Bern and he also was happy to play. I didn’t have my guitar, and there was no rehearsal, it was a very spontaneous jam and we had lots of fun as you can see on these photos.
