I have a remembrance of him online. On you will find a photo collage.

Here you will find a 10-minute video drumsolo that I've even filmed.

Huub - in any case - should also find his place here on Drummerworld!
Thank you very much for this extraordinary 10 minute video. I got to know Mr. Janssen work through the drum battle video with Antolini and another guy, and after that I just wished I could see more videos from this master. I can only admire his extraordinary snare drum technique, and his tremendous stamina. May he rest in peace. One last question: Why isnīt master Janssen listed on the top 500 drummers list? I donīt see any reason not to include him even in the 50 best drummers of all time list. And thanks again for this video.
