For eighteen months five teenagers from Amsterdam held the pop world spellbound. The Outsiders were stars from the moment they outshone The Rolling Stones, when they appeared as their supporting act in the Brabanthallen in March 1966. With all that stardom entailed: hits, delirious fans and exaggerated newspaper headlines about their long hair and wild performances. But the bubble burst before singer Wally Tax's 21st birthday and The Outsiders split up.
What remained is the memory of one of the best beat bands that The Netherlands has ever known. Beat Legends tells the story of The Outsiders in words and pictures, with wonderful photographic material, legendary record sleeves and tantalising newspaper cuttings. Plus a free CD of unique live recordings of The Outsiders at the pinnacle of their fame, the first two singles for the illustrious Muziek Expres label and a radio session for the progressive broadcasting company the VPRO, recorded in the then newly opened rock club Fantasio.
