Linda, how you start to work in this industry ?

I was already singing complete songs at 4 years old, however I started with my first band at 17 yrs old.

 

Are you most known in the musical business as the voice of Power of American natives or as Masterboy's second vocalist ?

Well that's a bit difficult to answer. I think more people relate to the Masterboy songs with me than with Power of American Natives simply because I had more songs with Masterboy in the charts. But don´t forget, there´s an amazing amount of people out there who don´t know either of these groups, but know me as the background singer for all the Milli Vanilli hits…

 

What was the real reason that you left Masterboy project ?

My 3 year contract was coming to an end, the boys did not want to pay the same amount of money I had been getting, etc, etc…

Did you perform live for AB Free, On TV and Paternoster or were these only studio projects ?

Those were just studio projects !!!

 

Were there videoclips shot for any of the singles you released with them ?

No there were none...

 

Are you still working for song-school Scream factory ?

Oh yes, of course. My husband George Liszt and I grounded the Scream Factory in 1992 already, and it´s still going strong, today!! I love to teach new talent!!!

 

Does Fayoum Blue still exist ?

No it does not.

 

Do you think the Milli Vanilli was the reason why European dance projects were so badly considered in the US ?

Well that´s not true at all. The States always gave Europe a hard time with releasing their projects in the U.S. !!! It did not help when we were outed with Milli Vanilli…

 

Linda you worked on La Bouche's first album Sweet Dreams, how was to work with our beloved Melanie Thornton ? Can you describe her ?

Melanie was incredible!!! When you saw her in person, she came across like a beautiful Amazon….. Most importantly, she could really sing, and she had a heart and soul, especially for her fans!! God bless you Melanie, we miss you…

 

Do you still keep in touch with Tommy and Enrico ?

If I see them somewhere, it´s nice to see them again, but other than that, I work with a lot of other artists and musicians now, and I love to sing with live bands!!!

 

What was your favorite Masterboy song ?

Just for You was one, but a less known one was Baby Let it Be, which I really love, too.

 

I know that you visited our country Romania with Masterboy. Do you have any special memories ?

Oh yes!!! The people were sooooooooooo nice and sweet. I wanted to hug every one of them, and believe me, I did try…….

 

Who is "Mr. Feeling" in Linda's life ?

I would say that´s my husband George….. (If I said anything else, wouldn´t I get in BIG TROUBLE ?) just kidding

 

How is Linda in real life ?

I love life. And I laugh a lot…. Creative, always moving and busy….. I love people in general…

 

Do you have any messages for your fans and for our readers ?

Be optimistic, don´t be afraid to make a move in your life, but most importantly, KEEP YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND AND KEEP REACHING FOR THE STARS…
