On my 15th birthday my mom gave me two rock albums: `Billion Dollar Babies’ (Alice Cooper) and `Close To The Edge’ (Yes) and from that moment on I have been addicted to rock music. Later on I discovered bands like Rush, Queensrÿche and Dream Theater and since 1988 I have been a music reporter for several magazines, like Aardschok, Rock Tribune, WATT, FRET, Stage, Lust For Life Magazine and a couple of websites. After all these years I still enjoy going to gigs and festivals, write reviews and have interviews with “notorious” musicians; the most interesting interview was with Steven Tyler in Boston by the way… My favourite bands are still Rush, Dream Theater and Yes and I honestly think that if a man is tired of rock/metal music he is tired of life!!
