Herman Brood was Holland's only real rock & roll star and a professional junkie. He became famous in the 1970s with bands like Cuby & The Blizzards and Wild Romance. He also stood out because of his excessive lifestyle; Brood lived on drugs and alcohol. Apart from being a rock & roll artist, Brood was a painter. He made numerous paintings during his life, and occasionally made comic books, like 'Pas Op, Daar Is Ie'. In July 2001, Brood commited suicide by jumping off the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam.
