Albert de Keijzer (Bassguitar and basspedals)
Albert was born on 14-10-1954 in the Haque Holland. He started his musical adventure when he was on high school and had a job in a snack bar and his friends came with a Citroen Avant full of music equipment to tell that he became a bass player in a band called Move-in. In that period he had tried to play guitar and piano, but that was not very serious. The band Move-in was also not very serious it was for fun and the chicks. While playing he came into contact with many musicians and music styles. A friend of him Rob Daalen took him to his first concert of Yes in the Amsterdam Concert hall. He was sitting on row 1, just in front of Chris Squire. And the fire started to burn. After that he met Ronald Brautigam who wanted to go in a new direction with his band Tarkus and was looking for a bass player and Gentile was born. They played songs from Yes, Gentle Giant, Led Zeppelin and songs created by themselves. After that he started a bookshop and was asked for Plackband. When Plackband stopped in 1981 he started a PA and Light company and ever since he is working in the music industry. Music is for him like breathing. He got a son and enjoys being a father.
