Portrait of a living ledgend:
written by: Grand FouxLoup (the french version of Big MadWolf)
CAUTION: Extremely serious stuff !!!
George Wolf was born on October 12, 1967 in a small town in Austria which does not have a name yet. Four month after his birth he could walk, jump, swim, read, write and speak 15 languages fluently. At the age of 2 he wrote his first hit song "De Do Do Do, De Da da da" which became a smash hit when it was recorded in 1980 by The Police.
Also in 1969 George wrote all songs for the Beatles' last two albums "Abbey Road" and "Let it be". However the album covers listed Lennon and McCartney as writers, because the record company was afraid that audiences would not take the Beatles seriously anymore, if they found out that their hits were written by a 2-year old boy form Austria.
In 1970 (at the age of 3) George began ghost-writing for other people. He started Elton John's career by writing "Crocodile rock" and went on to write all of Elton's hit records up to "Nikita" in 1986. He also started the careers of The Bee Gees, Billy Joel, Journey, Chicago, Bruce Springsteen and Sepp Huber by ghost-writing all of their hits.
At the age of 5 he worked as a guitar teacher for people like Eric Clapton, Eddy Van Halen and Steve Lukather. In 1980 George won his first Grammy Award in the category "Ghost-writer of the year". And from 1982 until 1987 all No 1 hits in the USA were ghost-written by George Wolf. In 1985 George was the ghost-organizer of the Live Aid concert.
In 1987 a big scandal occurred when the German newspaper Der Stern found out that George played all the instruments and sang all the songs on all records of the British band Queen. This scandal lead to the discovery that George was also the ghost-writer, ghost-singer, ghost-guitarist, ghost-bassist, ghost-drummer and ghost-keyboarder of bands like Def Leppard, Survivor, Van Halen, Foreigner, Guns and Roses and the Willi Müller Jodelrockband.
In 1993 George started working on his first solo album "Cold flame on hot ice". During his time off from recording he worked in Hollywood as ghost-director of movies like "Jurassic Park" and "The Flintstones". He also took over a job from Russia recently to work as ghost-president for this country as long as Boris Jelzin has heart problems.
Finally at the end of 1996 George releases "Cold flame on hot ice"- on CD, MC, MD and WC. Furthermore this album will also be the first one that is released in digital format on a recordable salami-pizza.
There is no dought about it - This album will be remembered for some thousand years. A milestone in the history of unpopular music - or even a milestone in the history of evolution. This album will influence the music world more than all of Mozarts, Beethovens or Heinos works.
But yet - this is just another chapter in the story of a living legend - George Wolf.
