Days gone by
The initial version of this song was called "These Days are gone".
I wrote it many years ago when I was in my late 20s. The lyrics of the song were actually about nothing. In those days I had such a hard time coming up with interesting lyrics. I introduced the song in the band I was in and was asking for input because I was completely stuck with this one.
Luckily the drummer, Meindert Joostens, came to my aid and introduced additional lyrics and an interesting modulation.
The band was called "Who's next" and wasn't very succesfull. We split up after a couple of years.
From time to time Anne-Marie and I ran into Meindert in a local bar we go occasionally.
Lately we noticed that he wasn't around much and just recently we heard that he had passed away.
Unintentionally these lyrics have a different ring to them now.
Since the song wasn't quite finished back then we added parts of the lyrics ourselves.
All in all a tribute to Meindert, we hope.
