Ule Winsomie Ritgen - Musical Background
Since a number of years Ule W. Ritgen has enjoyed a high international profile as a musician and songwriter. Awarded with gold discs and poll winning trophies he is continuing a successful recording and touring life.
Starting out his professional career as a bassplayer for Uli Jon Roth´s ´Electric Sun`, he after 7 years and 3 albums moved on to co-found the highly acclaimed ´Zeno´ with Uli´s brother Zeno Roth. Here, for the first time, Ritgen could also utilize his songwriting skills.
When this cooperation came to a standstill in the early nineties, he decided - despite some interesting offers from named artists - to launch, together with some friends, his most personal endeavour to date - ´Fair Warning`.
Fair Warning have, besides numerous singles and compilations, so far released eight studio albums and four live recordings, as well as three live-DVD's.
Their latest studioalbum was released in August 2016 and is entitled 'Pimp Your Past'. On release it reached, as almost all it's predecessors, the number-one position of Japans International Charts.
