Real Name - Roger Lustermans
Nationality - Dutch
Home Town - Maastricht, Netherlands

When/how did you first hear ABB - In the late seventies i heard my older brother play
LAFE. I was into punkrock at the time but still was impressed by IMOER and WP.
A few years later (about the time the genre was declared dead) i started to focus on bluesy hardrock and southern rock. I bought B&S and taped (cassette) my brother's LAFE LP and played it over and over again while being in the army (draft). I really became a fan when the dreams boxset was released and the new material (Seven Turns) blew me away. Best reunion ever !!!

Seen ABB? - Cologne Germany, 4th of july 1991. Still my all time favorite concert!

Seen Family bands:
GM - 5 times
DTB - 2 times
STB - 4 times

Wow! There's quite a few of us Europeans here.

Danis Georgiadis, born and living in Thessaloniki, Greece.

First heard the ABB in the early '70s (IIRC it was EAP) and been 'hooked' ever since.

Never seen them live, but hopfully that'll change in a few months.

Zeka, good to hear that you too are planning for Beacon bro, hope all goes well for both of us. A EuroPeach party would be fun. Roger, you got to make it too brother, though I don't know if we can find any Mythos in NY.

Real name - Peter Karlsson

Nationality -Swedish

Hometown - Vänersborg, since 1990 living in Malmö.

First heard ABB - A friend of mine gave me his vinyl LAFE sometime in the early eighties, hooked ever since. The reason for giving it to me was that he couldn't concentrate on working on his paintings (he's a very good artist) and listening to it at the same time, he always ended up lying in his sofa listening instead of painting...


Seen ABB- Not yet.... but seriously trying to get
enough money for Beacon 07

Hi there, here's another Dutchman reporting for duty.
My name is Peter and I live 50-50 in Holland and Sweden. www.petervankan.com tells the rest, in case you want to know more.
First heard the ABB in 1973 when I was 17; a friend had EAP and at that same time I saw that Duane played on Layla, which I had just gotten for my birthday. Duane has been an angel and teacher in my life ever since.
I saw the ABB in 1974 at an outdoor festival in Holland; I believe it's the only time they were here.

Hello Peter,

Welcome to the forum!
I'm from Maastricht down south; nice to see another fellow countryman here!

That outdoor festival (with the Doobie Brothers) was the firs time they played in the Netherlands. They returned in 1980 for a show in The Hague and haven't returned ever since. I haven't seen them at these two shows. They returned in 1991 for a European tour but skipped the Netherlands. I saw them in Cologne, Germany on the 4th of july of 1991. Still my all time favorite concert.
Gregg and Dickey never played here with any of their solo bands.
Prior to the Gov't Mule shows in 2005 and 2006 Warren Haynes only played here as a member of outlaw country artist David Allan Coe's band.
Derek Trucks played 3 fantastic shows last year with his band as part of the Dutch
"Steelin' 'n' Slidin'" project.

Keep Rockin'

Biertje?


Roger

To echo what Roger has already said . . . welcome Peter

like you, I first saw the ABB in 1974 . . . in my case at Knebworth in the UK . . . and then (like Roger) my next time was in 1991 but at the Hammersmith Odeon in London . . . an excellent show that I have a recording of, let me know if you would like a copy and I will gladly send it to you!
