Remembering the Roadie: Handiyanto

POINS-051209-4Standing next to me is Mr Handiyanto aka Embah Gambreng, former technician of the legendary Koes Bersaudara. Mr Handi joined the band as their roadie/manager/technician since 1963 until 1969. He designed Koes Bersaudara’s legendary LP’s To The So Called The Guilties and Djadikan Aku DombaMU. Directly involved in the recording of the two albums, Mr Handiyanto left Koes Bersaudara in 1969 to help Indonesia’s most famous girl band Dara Puspita as their roadie following their European Tour from 1969 to 1971. Mr Handiyanto passed away in March 2012.
