| Van stayed here in VanlÝse -
neighbourhood - with his girlfriend Ulla Munch for a while in the early 80'ies.
Ulla's 4th floor apartment has no elevator - Van coined it
'a 20 flight
rock' [Bristol 12/20/99]. The apartment overlooks a long lush green valley
...so Van wrote this song.
Van also formed a relationship with the
Danish Radio Big
Band, which has stood the test of time. I heard them last at the open-air
concert at The Toll Chamber in Elsinore, August 5th 1995.
Van's infatuation with the band is described in this
with Al Jones.
June '96 Van did a fierce concert in Middelfart for Rock
Under the Bridge on the first day of summer ...later that day he was found in
cement under the bridge!!
People often ask 'Where is
that Vanlose Stairway?'. So I'll provide a map of Copenhagen and VanlÝse >>
