Gretsch 'Backstage Series' Interviews with Karl Oluf Wennerberg
Drummer for a-ha since 2009, Karl Oluf Wennerberg has performed with the band nearly 200 times, and has also recorded and toured with Morten and Magne.

In this series of short backstage interview clips filmed before the a-ha concert in Balingen, Germany on July 21, Karl Oluf speaks with Lucas von Gretsch and his daughters about everything from his kit, to replicating a drum machine with an acoustic kit in a live setting, to the chemistry between the band members on stage, and much in between:

Magne: 'karl oluf is a giant of a man in a relatively small package - a supremely musical drummer with eternal and infectious enthusiasm.'
