This event should change his life. He got the job and started touring the world with AFSHIN and still is. 

Besides this main project he became a member of Blaze Bayley's (IRON MAIDEN) Band BLAZE for about three years. But as if this wouldn't be enough Daniel also played Jazz with the BuJazzO (Peter Herbolzheimer), the Ro Gebhardt Trio or EJAZZOLATION, Alternative Rock with the Justin Nova Band and Channel #4 and was the drummer for the saturday night TV show SCHRÖDER! (SWR-Television, Germany). Additionally playing musicals or doing clinics made him busy like never before.

Up 'til now Daniel toured in more than 30 countries, played concerts up to 25.000 people and recorded for over 40 albums. He is writing workshops for the DRUMHEADS! magazine and has also built himself a reputation as clinician/workshop/solo drummer. This made him appear at drum events like Dresdener Drumfestival, Erzgebirgs-Drumfestival, Ludwigsburger Trommeltage, Beyerdynamic Drumday, Drums & Percussion Paderborn and many more.
