“The Blacks” are a renowned rock band from Hohenlohe, Germany, that have achieved cult-status.  The September 2012 issue of the “Hohenloher Zeitung” (newspaper) carried an article entitled: “Ambassadors of Real Rock Classics” describing their achievements as “outstanding” (refer to www.theblacks-realrock.de). German only.


The band plays earthy folk rock songs that everybody knows and performs mostly songs for “true connoisseurs” of rock music. They write their own emotional and socially-critical songs from the musical genre of folk rock. Nine further tracks are currently arranged and ready to "high-fly"!

This is a song about misunderstanding – misguided by quick judgement of events (not heard or experienced) and one’s own imagination.


Leaving Stones behind

A song about “childhood” and “adulthood”. We would love to hear what stories our children tell about us when they are grown-up and as old as we are now. Wouldn't we?


Blind or not

A song about talks between a philosopher and an ordinary guy. 

Donald's Lullaby

A lullaby specially composed for “our” Donald – evil to him who evil thinks…
