11 August – You can change the colours that scare you

Fridays are good. They mean no getting up at stupid o’clock for two whole days. In May they usually mean a jury final to salivate over. In August its just getting out into the good weather and freedom.

And the tenuous link brings me to today’s birthday boy. Frédéric Van Goitsenhoven-Maeterlinck ‘Etherlinck’ sang a song all about freedom. Freedom of the voice to be precise. He also wore triple (yes, triple) denim which even in 1995 must have been a faux pas. Except in Spain and Austria. Frédéric now works for Brussels Airlines.

Frédéric is 49 today.

Bonne anniversaire, Frédéric!
