Dries Roelvink dared René Froger’t have to ask for broken friendship
Dries Roelvink, René Froger never dare to ask why their friendship is not. For many years, were the two according to the former the best of friends, but that ended abruptly.
“And I can still finger on why. We were in our twenties and thirties the best of gabbers, he coached me in café Bolle Jan, after which we drank of the Rembrandtplein, danced, and René was a witness on my marriage. But with his emerging success grew slowly, the distance between us that now irreconcilable.”
In conversation with Nieuwe Revu says the 58-year-old singer that Froger, as he more hits got more and more, another level was. “Went with important people and had the royal family went skiing to Austria. It fits that simple Dries from Amsterdam not more between, he should have thought.”
To his friendship with singer Tino Martin notes Roelvink that he and Froger still not okay with each other. During a dinner with Martin in a restaurant where Froger had enough, it was clear. “I saw him a few times watching us and thinking: oh dear, there is that Dries with Tino. The singer in terms of looks and voice just a little too much like me, and actually many times better than I am.”
Roelvink calls the whole situation “very uncomfortable”. “René is personally responsible for ensuring that Tino never at The Top has occurred when Gerard Joling in the group threw. He would categorically not have.”
