Wim S.

Name: Wim Strijbosch

Wim S. My artist name is Wim Strijbosch. In everyday life I am also known as Wim Strijbosch. Being 51 years old makes me an oldtimer. I have been into music ever since I was 12 years old. Two albums in particular changed my life: Van Halen's "Van Halen 2" and "Go For What You Know" by Pat Travers. I played music in several bands (vocals / guitar), I visit concerts and festivals and I still buy vinyl (and CD’s of course). I try to read as much as possible about the music I listen to. And it is only fair to say that I do not only listen to metal. I certainly have favourite bands in other (non-obvious) genres. I organise pop quizzes, I create compilation CDs for friends and my children are named after people from the music business (my son Sylvian and two daughters named Enya and Stevie). In short, I am a freak. I am very excited to be part of the Lords team and thus share my passion for music with others.

My favourite bands are: Journey, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Savatage, The Ladder, Anathema, Rush, Vader, Thin Lizzy, Mastodon, Led Zeppelin, Triumph, Behemoth, Fates Warning, Tool and Rob Lamothe. And in the non-metal genre: David Sylvian, Sigur Ros, Mogwai, The Blue Nile, Pink Floyd, Camel, It Bites, Fields Of The Nephilim and Tristeza. My slogan is: music is emotion, and there is the right music for every emotion.
