Name: Wim Rueter
Born in 1965 and it was in the year 1979 that I “fell” for the harder end of music. My infection started with ‘I Was Made For Loving You’ from well-known rockers KISS (and that was not even really rock, was it…..). But that was the first time music really hit me and was more than just a tool to seduce my female classmates on the dancefloor (which was not that successful to be honest). The visual and interactive aspect of music is important to me. I like a honest rock show with some flaws much more than a perfectly performed show from some perfectionists while they are checking out the stagefloor. Music to me is something that gives you a good feeling and gets your energy flowing.
Through the years my taste developed/changed to the AOR/Melodic Rock corner, although I am always open to a good slice of metal. I am a sucker for Scandinavian Rock, don’t ask why….I just do not know. On the other side; death metal and such is not my cup of tea. Since 2011 I have been running a fanpage for Y&T, called The Dutch Y&T Fanpages after being an admirer of the band for years. Besides my love for loud music, I love photography (especially at live shows).
