My first memory about pop music was the song "Kom van het Dak af" by Peter Koelewijn. I must have been about 6, when we were on the beach and my two older brother were imitating ,with sticks a guitars , the song.
When I was around 11 or 12 or so , we were fortunate that there was a rather progressive village council, but as we were situated around a tourist area (dunes,beeches and the sea) and so a few campings were around, this might also have played a role in inviting three well known pop groups in three successive years.Rob Hoeke, Golden Earring and the Shoes;
This kind of music I can remember from the first performance, like the next one; it must have been when I was 10 or 11(1964 probably)
Golden Earring came the next year I think, that must have been 1965 (12 years old)
I cannot remember the music from that concert, but I remember the following tracks and some more, but these are the good ones I really liked. They are very original I think and typically Golden Earring.
That Day (1966)
Then I lost touch with this kind of music.
The Shoes came next year (1966)
Other popgroeps were the outsiders
