As the track record grew, the transportation was frequently individual and Cuby drove a Peugeot with Erwin Java– who played in the band for over 25 years– from Groningen through Rolde, where Cuby lived, to the programs.
The story of Peugeot
Hans Vons of the C & B museum offered us a warm and special piece of info: “No, Harry was not behind the wheel, since he did not have a driver’s license at all. Naturally he drove covertly on a bike and in his own cars and truck, the cops understood about it, however they typically looked the other method. A cars and truck, however no driver’s license … well, it was Harry. The French automobile came from Erwin Java, however the journeys fit. It is clear that it has actually been utilized a lot, which there was a great deal of talk in Peugeot too, however not … about the music! Harry was a well-read individual and liked to listen to symphonic music. “
Last journey in 2011
The old dependable Peugeot has actually made lots of journeys through the Netherlands, the last journey was on May 28, 2011 at the Calypso program in Wijk bij Duurstede. Harry was currently ill at the time, and the efficiencies after that were cancelled. He had the ability to increase when again for the last program: Greetings from Grolloo in the town of the exact same name on June 11, 2011, and the circle was total. Harry Muskee passed away on September 26,2011
Peugeot did not enhance and Erwin Java made a warm gesture to contribute the cars and truck to the museum. Peugeot erased? No, definitely not in this case, the memory stays. It’s no longer a way of transport, it’s part of Harry & Erwin’s life, a life loaded with terrific experiences. We do not revive history, however the great memories that this Peugeot 406 is accountable for. For as long as possible, the Peugeot 406 will stay near the museum where Harry can take a look at it through a big mural, and possibly laugh: “We’ve been through a lot together, have not we?”
