Christian Verhoeven







What is music to you? What does it give you?

I was born with music, I can't even remember the time I didn't play guitar or other instruments, it's addict and drug, but in a good way ! :-)

What is your music dream?

I would like that some of my music would be played by great musicians and singers, maybe even big stars, who knows ;-)

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

This is a difficult question, everyone should answer "world peace", but that has been answered countless times. I think that music brings many cultures together and with that a part of the peace has been resolved, thanks Drooble because through you I have got to know more people from all over the world !!! That is already a good start !!!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I was made for loving you - KISS

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

KISS, Bullet for my valentine, Irone Maiden, Loudness etc ... but also David Bowie and many more, If the music is well put into its genre, I am satisfied and that can go from disco to heavy metal.

What inspires you to make music?

It can be about true stories, but also about fantasy or things that I want to achieve in life, I also try to become better and better in what I do and I do a lot for it.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

there are a lot of messages in my music, but especially the love for music itself and that there are more solutions than problems.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I have done innumerable performances in Western Europe a long time ago and I was a professional musician, the feeling was always enjoying and living in a kind of dream world, It was hard for me to leave the stage when a performance was done and to return back to reality. Now I can't perform anymore because I'm an invalid and started with a music studio and produce songs now.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

You never know what an improvement is or can bring, I would like to see more people playing live and less with computer, I certainly have nothing against computers but I miss the real work a bit lately.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's fantastic, and I'm glad I am a member of it, thanks a lott !!!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That you can play less live or get a contract with a record company.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I used to go to performances a lot and I also played a lot myself, but now that I am disabled, it's hard for me to go to performances, unfortunately.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Work with the right people around you, also study how sales, advertising, rights and everything that has to do with music works, music is not just good songs, you have to be able to sell yourself.
