Dear reader,again, this is not really a blog but an announcement. And a request! A new blog will follow very soon though, I promise :-) But right now I have a big favor to ask from you!

08 May

In the few years of ReVamp’s young existence the band endured many challenges and unexpected circumstances. Heavy winter storms with long periods of suffocating frost!

Joost played keyboard and was songwriter in After Forever. He was... read more

Australia, New Zealand, opera and holidays...

20 Jan

Dear reader, It is January 2013. Summer here in Australia, winter back home in The Netherlands. In my home country it has been snowing and that means everything gets deranged immediately. Here in Aussie I go from the shade to air-conditioned places to avoid the sun when it’s getting close to a 40 degrees Celsius. My French bulldog Obi needs to wear a coat because she has no fur on her cute little belly, I wear my summer dresses and put on sun crème on a daily base. I love touring :-) I have never been to Australia nor New Zealand before. I have never... read more
