The other ELECTRO BABIES about MR. OLLI BUSTER:

EL MATADOR:
"Papa Bear": Old but hardworking. He´s the motor in the band and takes care of everything. Thank you for this!

KIM PAGE:
The affinity to bass players is the red line drawing through my whole life as a musician. So, it's the natural consequence that I found my „better half“ in Olli in Electro Baby. Talking about equipment, setups, arrangements or non-musical issues – he became a real friend on and off stage.

DRUMGOD:
His never ending optimism and creative power keeps the band together and leads all projects to a special aim. He plays his bass as he would have been born with it!
