Golden Earring Biography
Best known in the U.S. for its hard rock material, Golden
Earring has been the most popular homegrown band in the Netherlands
since the mid-'60s, when they were primarily a pop group. The group was
founded by guitarist/vocalist George Kooymans and bassist/vocalist
Rinus Gerritsen, then schoolboys, in 1961; several years and personnel
shifts later, they had their first Dutch hit, Please Go, and in 1968
hit the top of the Dutch charts for the first of many times with
Dong-Dong-Di-Ki-Di-Gi-Dong, a song that broadened their European
appeal. By 1969, the rest of the lineup had stabilized, with lead
vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Barry Hay and drummer Cesar
Zuiderwijk. They experimented with their style for several years before
settling on straightforward hard rock initially much like that of the
Who, who invited them to open their 1972 European tour. Golden Earring
signed to the Who's Track label, which released a compilation of Dutch
singles, Hearing Earring, helping the group break through in England.
1974's Moontan LP spawned the single Radar Love, a Dutch number one,
U.K. Top Ten, and U.S. number thirteen hit. The group toured America
opening for the Doobie Brothers and Santana, but the lack of a
follow-up ensured that their popularity remained short-lived in
America, even though they remained a top draw in Europe over the rest
of the 1970s. 1982 saw a brief American comeback with the album Cut and
the Top Ten single Twilight Zone, but as before, Golden Earring could
not sustain its momentum and faded away in the U.S. marketplace. All of
Golden Earring's basic lineup has recorded as solo artists in Europe.
Radar Love enjoyed a second round of popularity when pop-metal band
White Lion covered the song in 1989. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
