Guitar king

On the sad occasion of the death of their lead singer Pierre Beek this weekend at age 63 (cancer), here is a flashback for Dutch readers and a chance to see unknown Dutch seventies' pop for the others. Around 1975, Hank the Knife and the Jets scored two top 3 hits in Holland with their guitar rock and roll - which was already at that time considered retro. But good fun nevertheless. I picked their Guitar King as my favourite song of this band. RIP.
Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player)
