My name is Steve I was in the US Army and lived in Mannheim for 5 yrs.
I got to know a bunch of CRAZY german's betwen the years 1983 and 1988.
The main part of the group of friends had a band called " Net Weight" .
I lost touch with them after a transfer. They lived in and around Wallstadt
and Kafertal close to Mannheim.
We had a great time going to concerts like the Scorpions and many others,
including thier own. The would play in small venues in the area.
One show they did was in Bierstadt.
I only remember them by first names or nickname, which is all they went by.
Frank, Markus,Beppo,Uttzi and Heavy Hilda.
If anyone has any information on these guys please pass it on to them or
contact me. They would refer to me as The Australian who lived in America
who drinks like a German. Or sometimes Steve Mcqueen.
Thanks Steve (Hip)
