Herman Brood was my first big influence in music. My uncle gave me the record 'Cha Cha' wich absolutely floored me. He was absolutely great live. He and his band The Wild Romance were like a perfect rock & roll train. His biggest hit was of course Saturday Night. He is in my opinion the only real rock & roll artist ever from Holland.

He was also a wonderful creative artist and painter. If you google his name you'll find a lot of his paintings and drawings.

Unfortunately his drug and alcohol habits were too strong. He jumped of the Hilton in Amsterdam in 1997.
Here are the chords and guitar solo from Never be Clever:
Guitar player is the wonderful Danny Lademacher!
