Shocking Blue

Profile:
Dutch rock group. Formed in 1967 by former The Motions guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen, joined by Cor van der Beek (drums), Klaasje van der Wal (bass) and Fred de Wilde (vocals). Their first single hit the Dutch Top 40 in 1968. Shortly thereafter, Mariska Veres replaced de Wilde as their lead vocalist. In 1969 and 1970, the group enjoyed a worldwide chart success with “Venus”, followed by several other hit singles. In 1971, Klaasje van der Wal was replaced by Henk Smitskamp. In 1973, Robbie van Leeuwen was replaced by Martin van Wijk. The group disbanded in 1975. Van Leeuwen attempted a relaunch in 1979, however the track “Louise” appeared only on a German compilation.
