The year, 2011, was special because I was back into singing, something I always loved to do. And with the professional backing tracks available
on the web the end result is great. My first public appearance was at the July 14th party in our village in France and if I'm to believe the
people who attended it was a great success. So much so that I've been asked to do another concert in August! Watch this space!

Back at the start of the 70's I was working as the DJ in an Amsterdam disco, The Bird's Club, when Focus, an exciting new Dutch group made their very
first appearance there. Featuring Thijs van Leer on flute and Hammond organ and Jan Akkerman on lead guitar they were a sensation!
I was lucky, not only was I honoured to be asked to sing with the band, (once), but I was asked to write lyrics for music written by Thijs. The result was
only one on record which I thought was great. It was Happy Nightmare.
