Well, when it comes to sports the Netherlands is up there among the very best in every sport there is, both winter and summer. With a relatively small population. But music? I can't recall I've ever listened to any band from the Netherlands. Heard of Golden Earring or whatever the name is, and some shit from the Eurovision Song Contest. But other than that, have I missed something!?

He wasn't Belgian!? My life's a lie.

Without footballers, in Ten Famous Belgians, that's reduced me to Eddie Merkx, Herge and Plastique Bertrand.
Adolphe Sax - invented and then named a famous musical instrument after himself.

Eddie and Alex Van Halen were born in Holland.
Might as well give that to them.
If you're doing that, Angus Young is married to a Dutchwoman and lives here part of the time. They have a house up in the east

Definitely Dutch and a just bit racist later in life. Rumour has it that he threw the Smurf puppets into the Rhine to avoid just being associated with them. Bit weird.

Alquin and Kayak were both half-decent progrock contemporaries of Focus back in the 70s. Radio Caroline used to play them both a lot.

The Ex are the best of the long-standing stalwarts.

The local scene is currently as good as I can remember it in my 30+ years here. There are a growing number of decent bands around at this moment: Tramhaus, Personal Trainer, Marathon & SØWT, to name but a few...
