The Boots

The BootsFrom: Germany

Modeling themselves after such British Invasion blues-based outfits as the Yardbirds, the Pretty Things, and Them, The Boots came onto the scene of psychedelic music. The band was made up of Werner Krabbe (vocals), Jurg “Jockel” Schulte-Eckel (guitar), Uli Grun (guitar, organ, harmonica), Bob Bresser (bass), and Heinz Hoff (drums). Jockel was known for playing his guitar with screwdrivers and other metal tools, and sometimes even a beer bottle. The Boots were good enough to land a contract on the German label Telefunken Records. A pair of albums were released, as well as several singles. In 1966, the band released the single “Gabby”, and after its release, Krabbe decided to leave. The Boots tried to continue without him but disbanded after a year.~ Allmusic
