Teaser в 1978 году выпустила единственный альбом. Они играли хард-блюз рок с великолепной гитарной работой Adrian Vandenberg и отличным голосом Jos Veldhuizen, напоминавший ранние работы Пола Роджерса. Сочетание этих двух музыкальных сил, опираясь на такие таланты, как бас-гитарист Peter van Eyk и ударник Nico de Gooyer, привело к написанию отличного материала. Adrian Vandenberg участвовал в записи альбома Whitesnake 1987.
Teaser возникли в Энсхеде, крупном промышленном городе на востоке Нидерландов. В ней начал свою карьеру известный гитарист Adrian Vandenberg. Он начинал играть в таких группах, как Pearl, Darling (группа, с которой он записал свой первый сингл), The Jaap Dekker Boogie Set and Magic Box.
При каждом удобном случае Adrian Vandenberg пытался контактировать с группой Maddogs имевшую в своих рядах Jos Veldhuizen - певца с невероятным голосом. Однако они его не замечали так как он был на несколько лет моложе их. Однако, когда Maddogs обьявили о вакантном месте гитариста Адриан понял, что ему придется действовать быстро: "Я должен действовать сейчас, в противном случае они могут найти гитариста и разрушить все мои мечты (золотые альбомы, мировые турне, красивые женщины, быстрые автомобили, икра и шампанское). Реальность конечно, было несколько иначе - в группу его не приняли, но он ухитрился увести у них певца!
В конце концов, связи Adrian Vandenberg в музыкальном бизнесе были вознаграждены. Его группа Teaser в 1978 году получила контракт c Vertigo Records, результатом которого был одноименный (и единственный альбом). Они играли хард-блюз рок с великолепной гитарной работой Adrian Vandenberg и отличным голосом Jos Veldhuizen, напоминавший ранние работы Пола Роджерса. Сочетание этих двух музыкальных сил, опираясь на такие таланты, как бас-гитарист Peter van Eyk и ударник Nico de Gooyer, привело к написанию отличного материала. Adrian затем создал группу Vandenberg, а потом получил приглашение от Whitesnake для работы над альбомом "1987". Позже заручившись помощью Jos Zoomer, бас-гитариста Дика Кемпера и певца Берта Heerink начали создавать свой собственный бренд, ориентированный на мелодичный рок-блюз. Jos Veldhuizen стал ведущим певцом в отличной голландской блюзовой команде Flavium.

Teaser originated from Enschede, a major industrial town in the East of the Netherlands. Having moved there in his teens, Adrian began by playing in bands like Mother of Pearl (with Jos Zoomer, later to become the drummer in a later version of Teaser and Vandenberg). Darling (the group with whom Adrian recorded his first single), the Jaap Dekker Boogie Set and Magic Box, both bands featuring well-known Dutch pianists.
At every opportunity, Adrian tried to go and see a band called Maddogs who had in their ranks a singer with an incredible voice; Jos Veldhuizen. Adrian was several years younger than Jos, whose band even owned their own , making him slightly reluctant to approach him. However, when Maddogs recruited a new bass player Adrian realized that he'd have to act fast: "I've got to act now otherwise they may find an amazing guitarist and ruin all my plans". His imagination and aspirations were endless; gold albums, world tours, beautiful women, fast cars, caviars and champagne, to name but a few. To cut a long story short, it was an offer no one would have dared refuse. The reality of course was slightly different: long car drives through Germany to play at some military bases in the middle of nowhere, and not enough cash to go round.
Eventually, Adrian's connections in the music business rewarded Teaser with a recording contract, the result was a self-titled first (and only album); a self-produced, rough edged blues rock album featuring Adrian's melodic, direct approach to guitar playing, his own sleeve art-work and Veldhuizen's soulful rock 'n' roll voice, a voice reminiscent of Paul Rodgers' early work. The combination of these two musical forces, backed by such talents as bass player Peter van Eyk and drummer Nico de Gooyer, resulted in the writing of songs which are as memorable as they are accessible. However, it's very unlikely that anyone outside The Netherlands, except for a few old soldiers, has ever heard of Teaser. Mention the name Vandenberg and you'll get a different reaction of course. Rumour has it that around this time Adrian auditioned for a guitarist-spot in Thin Lizzy, but that never worked out. Adrian instigated a number of changes in Teaser's line-up. Enlisting the help of Jos Zoomer, former Turbo (another Dutch rock-band) bass-player Dick Kemper, and singer Bert Heerink. The new band rallied together and started creating their own brand of classically orientated melodic blues Jos Veldhuizen opted for a bluesier approach and became the lead singer in Flavium, an excellent Dutch blues band.
Teaser's very first demo out-takes got them an American recording deal, and the band's name was changed to Vandenberg. Their first album was recorded at Jimmy Page's Sol studios in England. It was at the end of 1982 that the band went nervously to a Whitesnake concert to present David Coverdale with a copy of their album. Although Coverdale later claimed that it was Adrian's girlfriend who he was interested in, he told them at that time that he was impressed by them, and asked for Adrian's phone number. The Dutch Windmill would be the first guitarist Coverdale phoned after the firing of Micky Moody. Due to the massive chart success of Vandenberg's single "Burning Heart", the timing wasn't exactly perfect. A number of years later the perfect opportunity presented itself when Coverdale needed musicians to help promote the Whitesnake "1987" album. Joining Whitesnake gave Adrian an opportunity to work with one of his all time heroes and to meet many other idols on the way. The Teaser album started it all..
