Herman Brood was a Dutch rock n’ roller and painter sometimes called the only rock star born in the Netherlands.  He was also a drug addict who killed himself by jumping off The Amsterdam Hilton.  At his best he was very good. So good he inspired artists like U2 and Black Francis, whose excellent tribute album to Brood, Bluefinger, is our favorite rock album of the ‘aughts.
