Brainbox is a Dutch rock group from the late 1960s/early 1970s. The band was founded in Amsterdam by guitarist Jan Akkerman, drummer Pierre van der Linden and singer Kazimir Lux (Kaz). Their debut single was "Down Man", which established their progressive blues sound. They had several hit singles in the Netherlands, including "Between Alpha and Omega", "Doomsday Train", Reason to Believe and "Smile". Soon after they released their first album, Jan Akkerman and Pierre van der Linden left the group to join Focus.

After Pierre van der linden and Jan Akkerman left, Brainbox bass player Cyril Havermans also followed to join Focus, replacing the original bass player Bert Ruiter. They were replaced by guitarists Herman Meyer and Rudie de Queljoe and drummer Frans Smit. Meyer was later replaced by John Schuursma. After Kaz Lux left the group in 1971, their popularity waned and they split up in 1972. In 2004 Kaz Lux reassembled the band
(though without Jan Akkerman) and they performed in the Netherlands. In 2010 and 2011 the band performed again and recorded a new studio album The 3rd Flood. (

It's annoying how everybody copies everybody's info on teh internet, thus also copying the wrong information.
The facts are: Cyril Havermans was never in Brainbox. He didn't replace Bert Ruiter in Focus, but was replaced by Bert Ruiter in Focus. The original Focus bass player was Martijn Dresden.
The original Brainbox bass player was Andre Reijnen. He was one of the longest lasting members. Also Jan Akkerman and Pierre van der Linden didn't leave Brainbox together. First Jan left en he recorded an album with Focus with another drummer (Hans Cleuver). Etcetera, etcetera........

Dear anonymous poster

The information is taken from wikipedia. If you know the facts better, then you should correct the wikipedia article!

That only goes to show that Wikipedia can't be trusted. I can now go to Wikipedia and state "for a fact" that I was in Brainbox together with JC, the Pope and the Yeti............. This won't be removed until someone discovers I didn't mention any sources (strangely enough nonsense written in an official book is regarded "more scientific" than someone's personal memories). That's Wikipedia for you.
And I "should correct" nothing, I was just making an observation.
