Adrian Vandenberg is an international guitar hero and one of the biggest rock icons of The Netherlands. In 1983 Adrian scores the huge international hit ‘Burning Heart’ with his band ‘Vandenberg’.
Adrian stands out. Not only with his guitar playing, but also by his 6.5 ft (1.98m) appearance. Whitesnake’s David Coverdale is impressed by him and asks him to join ‘Whitesnake’. In 1987 they score 2 international hits ' Is This Love ' and ' Here I Go Again ' and tour around the world in the biggest stadium.
Before the scheduled recording of the album ‘Slip of the Tongue’ Adrian seriously injures his wrist. He can’t play the guitar parts himself and Steve Vai is asked to play them instead. It’s something that still affects him up until today. In 1999 Adrian Vandenberg leaves ‘Whitesnake’ and starts painting again.
This documentary shows what drives the 65-year-old Adrian Vandenberg to start a new band: ‘Vandenberg's Moonkings’, with inexperienced musicians. Including interviews with David Coverdale, Steve Vai and Moonkings’ lead singer Jan Hoving (who runs a big farm as well). It shows the huge contrast between the international rock star life and Adrian’s Dutch down to earth way of life.
