FYI… In 1970, drummer Cesar Zuiderwijk joined the band, completing what has become Golden Earring’s classic lineup. The band enjoyed brief international fame in the 1970s when the single version of “Radar Love“, from the Gold-certified album Moontan became a hit in both Europe and the U.S.[1] Golden Earring embarked on their first major U.S. tour in 1969–1970. Owing to American influences, their music evolved towards hard rock, and they performed along with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Procol Harum, and Eric Clapton. Between 1969 and 1984, Golden Earring completed 13 U.S. tours. During this period, they performed as the opening act for Santana, King Crimson, The Doobie Brothers, Rush and .38 Special. During 1973–74, when “Radar Love” was a hit, they had Kiss and Aerosmith as their opening act. While signed to the UK Track Records label, the band rented the superb quadraphonic sound system normally used exclusively by The Who. – Wikipedia
