Brian Auger – Life on Tour

A Film by Michael Maschke

Synopsis

Even at 80 Brian Auger is always on tour playing the stages of the world. He travels either with his own band, THE OBLIVION EXPRESS ( Alex Ligertwood, voc/git, Travis Carlton, bass, Karma Auger, drums) or joins musicians like Italian superstar ZUCCHERO on their world tours. His answer to the question , why he still loves touring, is very short: why not? What else? Music is his life! The film follows BRIAN AUGER, the famous master of the Hammond organ. He started his first Band with Rod Stewart, then had world hits with TRINITY & JULIE DRISCOLL and followed that by working with stars like JIMI HENDRIX, PAUL McCARTNEY or ZUCCHERO. And he has always been on the road. Even at 80 he is still on tour – his power and creativity just goes on – as does his love for music.

    Michael Maschke started by studying law. But after winning his exams he realised that this was the wrong direction and he started a career in television, first as an editor , then as author and director. He soon specialised in directing music and comedy and writing and directing documentaries. While shooting SUPERDRUMMING (1989), a 18 part television series about the history of music and the role of the drums, he met Brian Auger , who was musical director of the show. It still took some time before the idea for the BRIAN AUGER movie was born. After a long time working almost exclusively for German television he started in 2017 to work with his own company lifeonpix,concentrating mainly on documentaries.
