Felix Hanemann (born May 1, 1953 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American singer and musician.

Career[edit]

Hanemann formed the band Zebra in February 1975 with guitarist and singer Randy Jackson and drummer Guy Gelso, with Felix playing bass, keyboards and backing vocals. Atlantic Records signed Zebra in 1982 and their self-titled debut record was released in March 1983.[1] The album stayed on the Billboard charts for eight months, peaking at number 29. Zebra has continued to record and perform, going into their third decade with six albums to their credit.

In 2000 Hanemann released his first solo album, entitled “Rock Candy” and in 2006 he became a member of the band Harry Slash & The Slashtones.[2]

Felix is also currently the keyboardist/bassist for the popular metro New York area Led Zeppelin tribute band Hindenberg, which also features fellow Slashtoner Steve "Budgie" Werner (drums) and Karl Cochran (guitar), both veterans of the Ace Frehley band amongst other endeavors. Hindenberg's singer is Michael McEwan, also of A Perfect Tool.
