For many Blues fans, “Richie Arndt & The Bluenatics” have surely become the most versatile and innovative bands found in Germany’s Blues- and Blues-Rock scene!
After their four previous albums gave the audience proof of how well guitarist and song writer Richie Arndt and his "Bluenatics" (Jens-Ulrich Handreka, bass and Frank Boestfleisch, on drums) master the roots of contemporary Rock music, fans as well as music critics were surprised yet again at the tremendeous achievements with their 5th album: “Rorymania - A Tribute To Rory Gallagher", released in June 2007.
Ever since he started playing the guitar, Richie Arndt has always been a great fan of the Irish Guitar hero! Eleven of Richie’s most favourite Rory pieces and an additional tribute song written by Richie himself were recorded by the three-piece band within a period of two days under close-to-live conditions, thus retaining a uniquely raw, unrefined, authentic touch and true to the style of Rory Gallagher.
Three of Germany’s most reputable guitarists supported this work:
Alex Conti (Lake) , Gregor Hilden and Henrik Freischlader. The result is a stunning guitar summit on CD, revolving around the music of Rory Gallagher.
