It’s almost mid-december and time for the ‘years-end’ lists. This time no best or worst albums of the year but a top three of the best watched YouTube video’s i’ve posted. Almost half a million views and these video’s took the most hits in 2015 .

I didn’t expect such a big responce to a non-video bootleg recording of a studio jam session but it is so good to see that this music is so appreciated. (14.258 hits)3.)

This video-clip shows Daniel still in his one-man band era, well, actually a two man band era… (9286 hits)
