About me
I work as a Stage Manager for the Brussels Philharmonic. Setting up the instruments, the score stands, seats, attribs for the woodwinds and brass and so on. I am also responsible for arranging the set up-changes during the concerts. A heck of lot to do .... but, I am around musicians all day long and that's so much fun. Even if they play classical music of al sorts, I will always keep in mind that every music, even today's Heep-sound, is coming forth from the music that was made more then 100 years ago...
only, Heep sounds a lot better ;-)
Heepventions or other Heepster gatherings that you have attended
Did you go to HV2008 in Spain

Remembering Herluf Hermansen

Posted on August 25, 2009 at 12:30pm 3 Comments

I remember this nice young man, who came up to me in Spain, talking to me about our mutual interest in drumming. He loved my style and I loved his style. He comes to my mind every now and then. It was the first time he and I met, but we had a bond. I admired him for his strenght to keep on fighting and keep on making music, that's what a good musician does. Herluf, you rock my friend.

 Hello Staf, nice to meet again as we did in Spain and I am glad that we are now also 'friends' although for me, we have been friends,since the day we met in Spain. Wishing you a Prosperous New Year and hope that we meet again, someday. Regards. Joe.

Hi Staf,
yeah those where the days..... with slim legs and everything!:))
Yeah you really had slim legs those days, working seriously with the
great idea to use them as drum sticks if I remember correct :-)))))))
Or maybe it was the Spanish light playing tricks on me.... or too much
cold drinks..... I'm not sure anymore :-)))

Hoi Staf,

inderdaad opvallend dat er geen Nederlanders waren. Ik zelf kon helaas niet i.v.m. mijn werk. Waarschijnlijk hebben we ze met de sHeepmarkets teveel verwend. En daarbij is UH natuurlijk dit jaar vaak in Nederland met daarbij altijd wel een meet en greet of zoals in november met een Lady in Black contest

Hi Staf, thanks for very kind words.
I just started to wonder, maybe I should take something VERY strong or
some tranquilizing before I see the video you and Muzzy are making. I think it will be completely wild and crazy :-))))))))))))))!!!!!!!!!!

Bernie works just as fine as Bernt!
Anyway, it was brilliant meeting you too, and you were also exactly the person I imagined you were, cool, funny and kind!
