“Van HollenThe position in the Canon of Rock Legends is firmly established. They don’t need a documentary to cement it. We’ve been hearing for years about how that band came together and digging deeper into the story beyond the stock stories. To get a deeper story, to get a more intimate story, to first understand who those four guys were as children and human beings.

I know these musicians who are children and their family life and their struggles growing up in those early days.

When I heard he looked like an alchemist to me ‘Explosion’ And those accents, especially at first Van Hollen Record. So, for me, as a music fan, those elements are endlessly fascinating, knowing how people create these sounds. He was one of the great ones who changed it, and they don’t come very often.
