I also couldn’t get along musically with the producer Rick de Leeuw. So after 3 days of recordings I felt like like I should quit the band. And so I did.
The singer of the band, Pieter Bon who was responsible for not inviting the other band members, was not happy with that. We broke all communication. The CD was, and still is being sold, but I was never aware of it. I even thought that all my guitarparts would be deleted and that Pieter would ask someone else.
