Wikipedia : This day (December 24, 1946), in Amsterdam, Netherlands, is born Jan Akkerman, a guitar player, constantly experimenting with new equipment and guitars.

Official Web Site : Being an authentic improvisator he shows his maximal capability and, during band gigs, shares his affection on guitar with band members.

@allmusic : His solo career actually dated from 1968, though his attempt at a solo album, later titled Guitar for Sale — containing his covers of numbers such as What’d I Say, Ode to Billy Joe, and Green Onions — was so primitive by the standards of the time that it was deemed unreleasable until Akkerman started topping reader surveys in the mid-’70s.

@last.fm :

@Discogs : Dutch guitarist, born 24 December, 24, 1946 in Amsterdam. Founder member of Focus with Thjis Van Leer, he left the band in 1976, being replaced by Philip Catherine, following a solo career
