Van The Man, as his fans often refer to him, has build equally a reputation for his infamous eccentric and distinctive behavior, as well as being one of the finest songsmiths of our times.
Van Morrison started his career playing in various show bands in his hometown of Belfast in Northern Ireland. By the mid 1960’s Van Morrison formed the garage-rock group Them, who went on to become one of the foremost r’n’b outfits at the time and part of the so-called British Invasion of bands, such as Them, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones or The Animals, who became successful in the US during the mid-60’s.
The 1964 Them single ‘Gloria’ is a classic and has been covered by legends ranging from The Doors and Jimi Hendrix to Patti Smith and U2.
After leaving Them, Van Morrison steadily established himself as successful acclaimed solo performer and critically acclaimed recording artist. His first foray as solo artist were a string of pop-orientated singles, such as Brown Eyed Girl.
Van Morrison quickly progressed from the '45' pop-format to a more matured and respected songwriter with releases, such as Astral Weeks and Moondance.
