Zoni grew up in Magdeburg. In 1984/85 he joined the growing skinhead / punk scene. As a result, he came into conflict with the Ministry of State Security and was arrested and interrogated several times. Shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall , he managed to emigrate to the West, where he was accommodated in a disaster control camp in Wesel . After being housed in an emergency shelter for a short time, he moved to Friedrichsfeld in March 1990 . He joined the group Lost Boys, whose singer he remained until 2008. Due to personal and musical differences, he dropped out and was replaced by Adrian "Schwefel" Gnyp.
In addition to his band activities, he wrote under the pseudonym "Zonenpeter" for Willi Wucher's fanzine Scumfuck and worked on the label and in the record store. For a while he also ran his own mail order company for t-shirts and records called Mr. Nobody .
