Rinus Gerritsen

“The radio is playing some forgotten song, Brenda Lee's comin' on strong…”

Noted for his double neck Fender Precision (top) Danelectro (bottom), among numerous other instruments (including his own Vox Humana line of basses), Rinus Gerritsen has anchored Dutch legends Golden Earring since 1961.

From their beginnings as a traditional pop band to their far-flung forays into metal, prog, psychedelic, boogie, and permutations thereof; Rinus rocks into his sixth decade with fluidity as a pocket and harmonic player.
