Happy Birthday today (May 1) to Felix Hanemann. The bassist and keyboardist for the rock band Zebra is 65. Other rockers celebrating  include bassist Bruno Ravel of Danger Danger (54) and drummer Mark ‘Gus’ Scott of Trixter (50).

Zebra formed out of New Orleans, Louisiana in 1975 with Felix Hanneman on bass and keyboards, Randy Jackson on vocals and guitar, and Guy Gelso on drums. They released their debut album on Atlantic Records in 1983 which featured the singles “Tell Me What You Want” and “Who’s Behind the Door”.  The band got it’s start playing the East coast club circuit, frequently playing bars in Long Island.

Felix Hanemann also plays for a couple of great Led Zeppelin tribute bands including Hindenberg and also Kashmir. I’ve seen Hindenberg so many times over the years and they are amazing. Keep up with Felix’s schedule here. Cheers to Felix on his 65th birthday today!
