Page 55 : My Generation
Oops, had it wrong, that Specials concert is tonight, therefore I’m still able to get my words straight.
On today’s page, I’ve pictured the great Da Capo record store, the best record shop in the Netherlands, as I find and conveniently, in the close neighbourhood of my studio. In the time that i have worked on the page, Michel Terstegen, the founder and heart and soul of the store, still lived, I brought him a copy of the page, he was overjoyed and immediately pinned it to all the other memorabilia on the wall behind him. This summer, the good Michel died. And we and Utrecht miss him very much. Luckily, the store will continue to operate, so if you’re nearby, check it out. A true treasure chest! Here is a beautiful tribute to Michel by Brian Kotz.
