How a nice and cosy, even somewhat quiet metal fest can turn into an audition. On asking her what her true heart’s favorite band was, Dirk was happy to find that Tammy had a thing for Type O Negative. He explained to her that Black No.1 was started up, pretty much as a tribute to Type O Negative and the late, great, Peter Steele. Two weeks later she came to band rehearsal and immediately the song ‘Wolf’ was born. The rest is –as the expression goes- history.
So at this point Black No.1 consisted of Dirk, Jan and Tammy, and a drummer as well as a guitarist was needed, yet still to be found.
