Profile
Joachim Heinz Ehrig (born 1951 in Thuringia, Germany) was the madcap drummer "Eroc" in progressive rock band Grobschnitt. As early as 1967, Eroc had developed his own methods of multi-tracking and phasing effects with voices and instruments. A talented multi-instrumentalist, his solo work is an eccentric mix of synthesizers, space-rock, comic theatrics, schlager and folk musics.
