A dirty old rocker with a raspy voice, an incomprehensible Flemish dialect, wrinkles and grey hair to match the image. If asked, that's how I would describe the Ostend-born Arno, who turns 65 this May. An expo has been set up to honor his contribution to the rock 'n roll-scene in Flanders for the past 40-something years, located in and old movie theatre that's currently under reconstruction. Filthy floors, dangerous stairs, hardly any lighting; a perfect metaphor for Arno's years in the music industry. Because even if it looks deteriorated and dodgy to a spectator, the whole thing has been thought over very carefully by people who know what they are doing.
