In the 1990s, Arno Haas embarked on a full-time international career in the studio and on tour. For more than ten years, he was a member of the band of Sidney „Guitar Crusher“ Selby, and he is still playing saxophone with „Jürgen Waidele‘s Conversation“. Projects with international stars such as Wolfgang Haffner, RickyLawson, Franco Ambrosetti, Mick Taylor, and Alvin Lee were important milestones in his personal and artistic development.
