March 30, 2009


Music writer

Just because he’s the son of a Beatle doesn’t mean Dhani Harrison’s band is going to sound like a second generation, pale imitation of the Fab Four.

Far from it.

    Wereld pers naar blijf in bed actie

    March 29, 2009



    Ik vindt deze actie echt vele malen beter dan de expositie van John’s kunstwerken in de Hilton.
