The Wolfman howls again!, go check it out.
=M= dedicated the final week of 2006 to Dutch Delights featuring some names from the 60's and 70's. It made me think of another band, Shocking Blue, who's big hit in the 60's was Venus. I mention this in particular because lead singer Mariska Veres died on december 2, 2006, 59 years old.
I'm Dutch and I've put some Dutch music on this blog. The music here isn't any more outstanding than anywhere else, although there's plenty to discover but that's probably true for every country. One artist, a superstar, I really want to mention: André Rieu.
Rieu is a violin player and orchestra leader, specialized in waltzes. You may not like 'classical' music and even if you do, you may have no heart for waltzes (in fact, you probably don't). However, if you ever have the chance to go to one of his performances try your hardest to obtain a ticket. Rieu and his troupe provide topentertainment and make a concert incredibly fun to experience. Without any disrespect to the art of music, he plays everything, often with humor. Watch an impression. (ed. 3-4-07: link broke, search Youtube on his name and you'll find plenty of vids showing his musical diversity, craftsmanship and funny idiocy. Watch the crowds!)
