Merry Christmas everybody! Have an awesome Christmas. #hohoho🎅 See you on tour!
Transcribing a few Kayak songs today in preparation for the upcoming tour. Great music! I like to transcribe old school, with pencil and paper. 📝 Later I’ll scan them and use an iPad. But I love this old school way of learning songs. By writing it down, I have 80% of the song in my memory. Love my job!! 😁💪
Last summer I joined the legendary Dutch progressive rock band Kayak. On January 12th, 2018 we will release KAYAK’s seventeenth studio album entitled “Seventeen”.
Today we launched a trailer for the record, featuring snippets of three tracks:

A new year already! Last year my website was hacked, attacked so many times, that I had to rebuild a website from scratch. So I lost a lot of posts. Luckily I was able to get everything up until 2014 back online. I’m happy I was able to recover the Neal Morse Tour, Transatlantic Whirlwind Tour and the Mixing Affector blogs. Well, we will just pick things up from here 😉
What have I been up to? Mainly I am working on my music schools. We expanded to three schools now and we’re working on opening 3 other music schools in The Netherlands in the coming months. Exciting stuff!
A new year full of new chances to make something great! Looking back on 2013, I can fully say that it has been my best year so far! A lot of great things happened music wise, but also business wise and on a personal level. I just can’t wait to what 2014 will bring us! This year for me will start with a few new releases I played drums on.
