How They Live...: Leslie Mandoki
Another entry from the Bravo article about the band members' houses. What I have learned from this one: I really, really would not have wanted to be Leslie's neighbour.
Leslie Mandoki: He Owns Seven Drumsets.
Leslie Mandoki is, as a trained drummer, the full-blooded musician of the group. He is 27 years old, and has composed some songs for Dschinghis Khan. Privately, Leslie is very different.
"I write and compose a mixture of rock and jazz. Together with my Hungarian countrymen, we have rented a studio here in Munich. There sit my six drumsets. The seventh, I have in my home. We meet two or three times in the week and make music. I have recorded countless tapes of them."
Leslie has already played the drums in school bands in Budapest and finally came with his own group to Germany. He is proud of his German passport, that he finally got three months ago, and his black Golf GTI. When his life becomes too hectic, then he writes poetry in his Schwabing bachelor pad.
