Early Insight

In the late 1960s Giorgio and I started to write songs together. It was pure fun. We were both beginners then,  still waiting for success, and no one tried to dominate the other. Though we had some minor hits, we did not really make it. Soon we both found other songwriting partners. At about the same time I started my career as a producer Giorgio had some success as a singer of his own songs and moved to Munich where I lived. We met regularly, exchanging our hopes, ideas and experiences. I never forget what Giorgio told me one November evening in 1969, when he visited Roswitha and me in our Pasing flat. “Michel”, he said after dinner, “you must become international. I certainly will. Germany is too small for our talents.”
