In his childhood, Drews lived in Schleswig. After finishing school, he went on to study medicine at the University of Kiel, but dropped out of medical school to work as a singer. At a young age, he already displayed musical talents, at age 15 he received Best Banjo-Player of Schleswig-Holstein, as a member of his own jazz band the Schnirpels. Soon after he was playing in his school band the "Monkeys". In 1967 he was solo guitarist in the Kiel based psychedelic rock band "Chimes of Freedom", later renamed by its manager to "Die Anderen" (The Others). In that same year, Drews took on his first acting role in the German film comedy Zur Hölle mit den Paukern. He is most known for being a member of the legendary 70's pop group the "Les Humphries Singers", where, in parallel, he also started his solo-career.
