      Rudi Protrudi is known primarily for founding and fronting legendary Garage rockers, »The Fuzztones«. His career spans 44 years and has included performing and recording with various influential artists such as Sean Bonniwell (Music Machine), Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Esquirita, the Cult's Ian Astbury, The Dead Boys, Lydia Lunch, Billy Idol, Sylvain Sylvain (NY Dolls), Lenny Kaye (Nuggets compiler/Patti Smith guitarist), the Chocolate Watchband, the Pretty Things, Mark Lindsay (Paul Revere & The Raiders) and 60' Garage icon Sky Saxon (The Seeds).

      Rudi has instigated many other projects, including the first Link Wray inspired instro band, »Link Protrudi & The Jaymen«, and two solo albums in the (admittedly bent) Country vein.

      His newest project, »Rudi Protrudi Unfuzzed«, features the Garage guru in an acoustic setting, performing raw, gutbucket country delta blues and Chicago-style blues, backed by a five-piece band consisting of the best blues players in Berlin. For this recording he took the stage of Berlin‘s »Wild at Heart«, bringing a little piece of Mississippi to your turntables. Invoking the ghosts of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Skip James,»Rudi Protrudi Unfuzzed« transform Rock venues into crossroads Juke Joints.

      Maybe , next year , Rudi can play at The Chicago Bluesfest.

      They need new blood.

      Not to say Rudi is a vampire. I did see him once  , on Hallowe'en , wearing a Dracula cape.

      He asked if any women in the audience would like to help him take his cape off , saying ,

      "It's OK , I don't have AIDS.   But , I do have Herpes."

      "HERPES?!" , I said , "You're old school !!!".
