Patty Brard's latest column for Weekend magazine deals with Dutch singer Dinand Woesthoff. The SBS 6 diva admires the former lead singer of rock band "Kane".
In 2003, he married Dutch actress Guusje Nederhorst in Las Vegas, Nevada. She died the following year from breast cancer, shortly after the birth of their son Dean. Dinand paid tribute to her by releasing the single "Dreamer (Gussie's song)" (performed with Kane) which hit the number one spot in the Netherlands and went platinum in 2004.
