Yup, It's me

Call me Hans Werksman, 'cause that's my name.

I am a Dutch music freak, who happens to like the music of John Cale a lot. I got my first taste about 38 years ago at a friend's house whose mother happened to own the first Velvet Underground album. When the record got to the Black Angel's Death Song I was blown away by the hissing noises. That was Cale hissing. The next day I bought the album my self, and I never looked back.

I own nearly all the stuff that John Cale has released over the years. Collecting bootlegs, promos and other evasive products has become a lot easier since the net connected everything.

My guess is that I have seen John Cale perform live more than 150 times since 1980.

As I mentioned before: I am into music big time. Read more about my musical likes (and dislikes) on my blog:

Note: I also use the blog for the latest news about John Cale, which sends its updates automagically to the John Cale Twitter. Occasional updates also appear on Facebook.

No, this cat isn't named John

Personal stuff

I am married to a lovely woman and the proud father of an amazing boy and a real cool girl. And there is a cat about, who doesn't give a fuck, like all decent cats. Oh, and I build websites for money.

Ready for war

Using nuclear weapons should be outlawed, but I'll make an exception for Finland.
