CD 2 Alibi Wintertime Mountain Too Rough They Get To Know Me Bert Heerink ex Vandenberg was asked to help the band out on tour in The plan was that on stage he would do the songs that Edward Reekers did originally, leaving more room for Max Werner to do his own Kayak songs and play percussion.
But when Werner left, he was not replaced, so Heerink became lead singer. He did three studio albums and one live album before concentrating on his solo career. Rob Vunderink joined in as extra guitarist and vocalist. Vunderink is an experienced musician who played in many Dutch bands since the s. He collaborated with Pim Koopman in the Diesel band, which reached No.
In , female singer Cindy Oudshoorn joined Kayak for the Merlin album and tour, and she decided to stay. In , Jan van Olffen joined Kayak as their bass player. He had previously worked with Sister Sledge amongst others, and played in the house band for many Dutch stage musicals.
Monique van der Ster also joined the band briefly in as a vocalist. On 4 January , the band released Coming Up for Air. That same day saw the start of their 35th anniversary tour.
On 7 October , they ended the tour at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. In October , the band embarked on a Dutch tour. According to Ton Scherpenzeel on the band's website , after that tour, Kayak would no longer do the album-tour-album-tour cycle. They would probably keep on making new music though, as Scherpenzeel stated. But the sudden and unexpected death of Pim Koopman in November halfway through the tour made the future of the band uncertain. In May , the band's website announced a tribute concert for Pim Koopman.
The concert was held on 22 November at the Paradiso. It involved not only Kayak, but also some artists with whom Koopman had worked in the past. For the occasion, Kayak used Hans Voerman as an extra keyboard player. The drum stool was occupied by Hans Eijkenaar. After the concert, Kayak announced that Eijkenaar was the new drummer of Kayak. Eijkenaar was not always available for Kayak concerts; Sjoerd Rutten was the drummer when he was unable to perform. On 21 September , it was exactly 40 years ago that the band's name was chosen.
To celebrate this, Kayak went on a tour titled Journey Through Time after one of their songs. They played at least one song from each studio album. Also included was an excerpt from their forthcoming album Cleopatra — The Crown of Isis. KAYAK revived in the 21st century, recording new albums and touring again. Most members were trained musicians at the conservatoriums of Holland.
Their debut "See See The Sun" is often seen as their biggest contribution to the symphonic prog genre. The vocals of Max WERNER ''77 are very distinctive because of his high-pitched voice that has a powerful strength-through-weakness appeal. After this the band wanted to have better sales and changed direction in to pop-territories with "Starlight Dancer" , which only had the title track as a progressive song.
After that "Nostradamus - Fate of Man", their second rock-opera, saw daylight. In the band again changed direction and recorded the conventional symphonic rock album "Coming Up for Air".
After that "Letters from Utopia" was released with the same line-up.
