It happen just as he was releasing his new album Bloedheet and with a film part coming up as well it was really unfortunate for the popular Dutch singer who represented the Netherlands at the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest.

Some will say that this is a cheap trick to get high on the download list and to earn some more money, but fact is that very few singers would invite their fans home for coffee so despite him winning on this competition it is a nice thing to do and as his biggest fan in Denmark I would love to go. Anyone who will sponsor my flight ticket should I win? 🙂
