...can't believe it's been 5 years since I last blogged.
I don't know if anyone will read this or if my previous blogs were read but that doesn't matter really - it's a good place to place some thoughts & hopes & wishes...
5 years ago I was talking about my musical past & the beginnings of the Janus stuff & yes, it was all good, naïve fun & in the end, despite our making a bollocks of the whole thing, we became a cult band of sorts. The album is all over You Tube, especially 'Red Sun' with many, many clicks. Wonderfull hippy stuff. The album itself is/was worth at least $400 on the collectors market.
We tried several come-backs but because of everyone living so far apart it just wasn't going to happen without a hit.
Anyway, the rest of my musical history can be read on my bio page as to what happened after that and here we are...
I had hopes of my Zielsveel/Heart & Soul solo recordings would be a new & engaging project for a ballet group but before taking on new work the company split up so once again these timeless recordings are back on the shelf - for now. The songs can all be listened to on my website pages plus from there you can go Soundcloud where there are more wonderfull tracks from yours truly. Oh yes, it's on Spotify too.
I have now reached the age of 66 & that's very silly because I still feel 21! Ok, my bones & muscles don't always agree but but I still feel so much younger. Especially on my bike - I've more or less done my 4000 k's again this year & not so long ago, when I was on stage again at the Venray Total Music Festival with the reformed Sun King guys - I was 21 again! A little clip from that gig is:

We had had 4 rehearsals & the lady singing had never heard the song before & quickly listened on her phone before hand!
The name of the band will not be Sun King as that was a Cult tribute band & this is definitely going in the direction of Blues/Blues Rock but whatever, it's nice to be in a band again. For me this is going back to my roots - da Blues.
Ok, part 1 of more to come? We'll see. I'll put this up first & see if I'm sparked enough to continue.
To you who read this, don't let all the crap (very much worse than 5 years ago!) get to you & spread Peace & Love wherever you can & nuts to all those idiots who don't believe in that concept!Afbeelding bij 'Can't believe it’s been 5 years since I last blogged. '
