In 1995, one year after André’s break through in the Netherlands, he was invited as a guest in Karel van de Graaf’s talk show. At that time Karel van de Graaf was known as a tough and critical interviewer, but it turned out very well for André. André here is 45 years old, overwhelmed by the hype of his success. Within a week he sold 300.000 CDs of his album “Strauss and Co”. That had never happened before in the Netherlands.
