Sammy Shmoulik Avigal passed away

This terrible news reached us today (July 31, 2020):

Hello everyone. This is Shmoulik’s wife. I wanted to let you all know that at 4:58 he lost his battle and passed away. Please celebrate the man, the legend. Goodbye my love — we all love you.

Needless to say we are heartbroken by this terrible news. Sammy was a great friend, a great performer and vocalist. We are very proud that he was the singer in our band in 1982 with whom we recorded one of the best Dutch metal albums ever: Diamond Dreamer.
We will miss you and would have really wanted to do some tours with you to celebrate this album but it wasn’t to be.
Our thoughts and prayers go to your wife and next of kin.
Godspeed Sammy Shmoulik Avigal!

New singer for Picture

It is with sadness that we have to say goodbye to Ronald van Prooijen as singer of our band. Due to personal circumstances he will no longer be able to put enough time and effort in the band. We are however very grateful for the years we worked together and thank Ronald for the excitement and professionalism he brought to help Picture with our new gained success since 2016. We will miss him and his phenomenal stage presence.

Of course, this will not be the end of Picture. We will go on with a new lead singer: the Italian heavy metal vocalist Phoenix Reborn. We have met him through Appie’s Iron Maiden tribute band “IJzeren Maagden” where he is also the lead singer.

After one rehearsal we knew he was our man. He is very happy to join us and take his own musical career one step further. Picture welcomes him with great excitement, and you can expect equally great shows very soon.
