Q65 – The Life I Live (1966)

Q65 – The Life I Live

 

 

Q65 was a Dutch rockband formed in The Hague in early 1965. Before Q65, Peter Vink (bass) and Jay Baar (drums) played in another blues band called Leadbelly’s Limited. In The Hague there were many Indonesian Dutch bands that played instrumental numbers in the 1950s. Their mysterious sound also influenced Q65. In the middle of 1965, they had some live gigs and were called the “Dutch Pretty Things” because of their Ugly sound. – Radio Screamer

Johnny Thunder – I’m Alive

I’ve been obsessed with this song for a while, so I did a lil’ research to see what the deal was with Johnny Thunder ‘n found out he was the ex-singer of the Drifters from Florida. Also, the original is the Tommy James & The Shondells version. Bob Dylan told Rolling Stone magazine “Johnny Thunder is the best live performer I’ve ever seen.”
