JUDGEMENT was the name of the band around 1970 that was in the forefront of the Q65. The band only has a year of existence. Photo was probably taken in Vlaardingen where the fans were still sitting nicely on chairs. The only band member whose name is still known as Bassist and Artist & Painter is Pierre van Dijk.
P.S the Guitarist of this band had the nickname stoffel😂
Judgment existed from 1969 to 1970 and then continued until 1971 as Green Lizard and Stonehenge. The members of Judgment were Herman Schmitz (Soul Brothers, Tagrag), Constant van Loon (Lava), Peter (Pierre)van Dijk (Home Side Up, Big Wheel) and Chris van Dijk (Big Wheel).

Agenda; 16 June 2018 to 13 January 2019. / Hermitage-Amsterdam
Artists, Italy and the beauty ideals of the 18th century
The human body has fascinated artists through the ages. In the middle of the eighteenth century this subject was given a new dimension in art by spectacular excavations in Italy.
Among others, Canova, Thorvaldsen, Mengs, Kauffman and Batoni strived for the ultimate perfection: even better than the (aesthetic) ideal of the Greeks and Romans. Many artists and well-off young people went to Italy to look for the sources of inspiration. In the exhibition the visitor makes the same Grand Tour along the best examples of this neoclassical art, from the Hermitage collection.
Classic Beauties becomes a feast for the eyes including a beautiful Canova collection, including the absolute masterpiece De Drie Gratiën (subject to change). On display from 16 June 2018 to 13 January 2019.
63 Dutch Masters from the famous collection in St Petersburg
will come to the Netherlands and be ‘at home’ again.
