while visiting family back in germany and the us army training base in grafenwoehr, phil met three local musicians that coincidentally played a similar style of music to his own. they hit it off straight away and audition for the germans was inevitable. a successful session resultet in phil forming his backing band, “phil seccer band”.
from this moment on, the three german band members were professionally known as Rusty “Wag” Beam, Pete W. Daniels and Dave Walker.
