From the early Jamacain Ska and Reggae to Punk, Psychobilly, (classic)rock, metal, folk and even some electronic stuff… I mostly can’t stand commercial mainstream music.

As I mentioned before, I like a lot of different styles of music. I’m not going to mention over 250 artist. Just ask me if you want to know more about my preferences.
Music, Food, concerts/Festivals,(local) History, Reading books, Hanging out with my friends / drink some beer (special brews).
I think it was Metallica in 2003 or some local bands in “De Oefenbunker”.
First played concert:
I played my first concert in 2004 in “De Oefenbunker” in Landgraaf. The band was called ‘Tribe War’.
Most interesting event on stage:
Well, I really like playing on stage. Hard to choose most interesting event.
Once I smashed my head into the headstock of a guitar. The guitar player stepped backwards while I was head banging. “Raining Blood”…
First Metal album:
I got ‘Mutter’ by Rammstein and slipknot’s self titled album in the same time. Still like listening to those albums, but I’m not into nu-metal anymore. By that time I was 12 years old and started to develop my musical preferences, i think it got a bit of out hand…
Favorite books and films:
My favorite book is ‘De Bende van de Bokkenrijders’ by Ton van Reen.
My favorite movie is ‘The longest Day’ (1962).
I’m also a fan of ‘Jiskefet’ and ‘van Kooten & de Bie’ (Dutch humorous tv-shows).
Beer, Coffee, Water, Whiskey
Traffic, Racism, Coldplay, Soccer(fans).
Despite the things I dislike I can be a nice person, just be nice to me and make sure you try to contribute to society in a good way…
Except being a musician, I’m a part-time student social work and working a job as a warehouse employee.
