  • Interview in the POWERPLAY MAGAZINE (UK)!

    The press work pays off more and more: in the last issue of the UK-magazine POWERPLAY a two-sided interview of the band was published, ALLAN BANNERMAN chatted along with bassplayer Michael Wachelhofer primarily about the history of the origin and the future plans of the band.

  • Austria Tour 2008 - a Rreview

    Now, also the tour through Austria has been finished and the Band will have their well-deserved break till the end of this year. 16 concerts within five weeks were more than exhausting. Especially the concerts at MILES in Graz and at KLIMBIM in Stockerau were excellent - the promoters were so impressed about Cornerstone, that they booked them for two more gigs at their locations next year. A bit depressing around this tour was the gig at BACKSTAGE in Wiener Neustadt. "We haven't found out an arrogant and shabby treatment like this since starting our band", says MICHAEL WACHELHOFER" we just played the gig but our motivation does not exist anymore. For the future we will avoid this location". At the end of the day "The tour was O.K. but not more", adds STEVE WACHELHOFER. Complementary Michael: "If you are playing a tour through Great Britain, which was absolutely fantastic and after that you come back to Austria - that brings you down to earth again". For sure we will play concerts in Austria, but there will be no "tour" in the future - we don't want to waste our time and energy. Focus for us will be UK, Germany and the U.S.A..

  • Sensational gig at the BH2/ London!

    As part of our U.K. tour, Cornerstone played twice at the legendary BRIDGEHOUSE 2 in London, where bands like MADNESS, SEX PISTOLS or THE CLASH played. The concert they performed together with REMUS DOWN BOULEVARD, the new band from IRON MAIDEN-former Dennis Stratton was - according to bassist Michael Wachelhofer - "the best concert we have ever played". That evening everything was perfect - the rhythmsection, the guitar work of Steve Wachelhofer and the outstandingly good harmony-singing. Dennis Stratton praised the band after the gig: "This band is very good and very, very tight". Stratton has been in the music business for 35 years. | More Info...
