When I was 8 years old when my parents took me to a show of Tommy Steele in 1958 in Cape Town, South Africa. After that, I wanted a guitar. My parents bought me a kidguitar. I couldn't play a note but was singing as loud as I could outside at the entrance of our flat in Cape Town. I wanted to be a pop-artist and finally became one. I have lived in South Africa twice as a kid and as a teenager, together about 9-10 years. I have also lived in the former West Germany as a teenager, Ibiza, Italy, Spain, Portugal and The Netherlands where I was borne in The Hague. In the seventies and eighties I made some (6) records as a singer-songwriter in the Netherlands, Belgium and Canada. When still in South Africa I was 14-15 years old I thought my brothers Rob & Ferdi how to sing and at a later stage forced them to learn how to play guitar and organ. After giving them a GIG that was meant for me they got discovered by a plugger of a record company. Shortly after they signed a record contract I did as well. In 1988, I met a girl of nearly 18 years old the most beautiful woman you can imagine and 21 years younger than me (cradle snatcher). However she wanted me to stop recording records, performing and composing music, so no more music business for me. After almost 25 years of marriage I divorced her because she fell in love with a 12 year younger co-worker. After emigrating for exactly 2 years to Spain I returned to The Netherlands on the 24h of July 2013 when I went to court of law to get divorced. I returned to Spain and then returned to The Netherlands on the 31st of July 2013. On the 4th of September 2013 I got divorced. In 2014, I slowly started composing again and still am to this day. At the end of last year I received an e-mail from a woman in London who was coming to The Netherlands to visit family. She had been in the same emigration camp in South Africa as my mother, me and my 2 younger brothers. She had 3 brothers. It seems they were always listening outside when we were rehearsing in a little house meant for many purposes. She and her 3 brothers were so impressed that they took guitar lessons. These boys got a record contract in South Africa. When they returned to England they started performing, and they still are. How a 14-year-old boy with a guitar and his 2 singing younger brothers 5,5 years and 4,5 years younger than me could have inspired 3 other young boys to start playing music and getting a record deal is above me and was a great gift of a inspire-ring moment. I set up the publishing company for my brothers Company Le Disque Holland B.V. and was in charge of leading Le Disque Publishing and finding new talent. I have recorded different records with different Record Company´s under different artist names. I have had my own companies some in the music business and others in different areas of business.
