„There’s no such thing as canceling a gig, it’s either hospital or death,“ my 86-year-old father-in-law Armin Baptist explains to me. His humor caries a mischievousness that only musicians have who have been on stage for decades like him. Nevertheless, there is always some truth in his arsenal of musicians‘ sayings. A few years ago, he snuck out of the hospital after a surgery to give a concert with his band the Kalliope team. When I asked him if he would like to retire one day, Armin quotes German humorist Loriot:?„Sorry, this is my first retirement. I’m still rehearsing.“
