Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A Dutch icon has passed away: Ramses Shaffy, born 1933. His spirited character, his zest for life and his outstanding sense for poetry (particularly for a language as clunky as Dutch) justify comparisons to Jacques Brel.

(Meaning: Sing, fight, cry, pray, smile, work and admire)

Goodbye Ramses.
