Is that group Dutch??
I thought the name of the song was "Hocus Pocus", and the group was Focus


Certainly! Although way before my time, Focus was a Dutch band back in the day before Jan Akkerman (guitar) and Thijs van Leer (flute, organ & yodel-voice) lost their balls, ehm, musically speaking Wink

'Live at the rainbow' is the must-have live Focus recording imho, including the live version of hocus pocus with amazing vocal performance of Thijs van Leer.

Nah, I meant this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTB0NZnDnGA

Although, Focus, yeah!
Jan Akkerman, Thijs van Leer, Ceryl Havermans en van der Linden (lost his first name, whicfh isn't Rik, BTW)

The girls are called K3 and are Belgian, but very popular in The Netherlands.

Jan Akkerman didn't! Still one of the best guitar players in the world...

Thijs was well known to be anti drugs!

Hmmm, I tend to disagree. Yes, he still is an exceptional guitar player, but his music - at least what I have seen and heard - is a bit uninspired imho.

BTW, I think it is Pierre vd Linden

Sorry to disappoint you on the issue of the Netherlands and drugs, but I just noticed a newspaper article in 'de volkskrant' this morning that had statistics on European drug usage. Consumption of 'soft drugs' in Netherlands is about low-average in comparison to other european countries but quite a bit lower than 'suppressive' countries such as France and the US. Personally, I never felt the urge to use any drugs, even though some are legal here.

I only meant that you have a degree in chemistry, right?

Ah Laughing , well, close, it's in immunology. Anyway, it was a nice opportunity to spill some trivia on Dutch drugs consumption Wink .
BTW, unfortunately not too many links in my professional life to music, apart from the radios in the labs.
