Band History
 

Preface

Through the years the names of many musicians, with whom Henk Werkhoven has played, in bands and (solo) projects, sank into oblivion. But most of the names of these bands, and (solo) projects remained. However it might be confusing, because Henk Werkhoven was playing in several bands at the same time, or the collaboration with many a band didn’t last long. For any reason whatsoever. The overview restricts to an as complete as possible reconstruction. Arranged in a chronological order and divided (up till now) in seven parts.

Unfortunately so many photos got lost through all these years, or got damaged.
