Biography

René Berg (February 24, 1956 - July 28, 2003) was an English musician, vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter who recorded and performed in a number of bands starting in the late 70’s until his death in 2003. His notable bands included Idle Flowers, Soho Vultures, René Berg Band, along with appearances in Hanoi Rocks, Herman Brood Band, and Jim Penfold’s Hollywood Killers (known at the time as The Killers). He was born in Kent, England.

Late 70s-1985

René Berg started out his musical endeavors playing with notorious Dutch junkie rock n’ roller Herman Brood in the late 70’s before starting the Idle Flowers in September 1981 back in London, England. The band opened up for Hanoi Rocks on 20th January 1983 at the ‘Klub Foot’,Clarendon and René also guested on guitar with Hanoi Rocks sometime in that year,and joined Hanoi Rocks on stage at Birmingham Mermaid on the 27th May for the encore. The Idle Flowers recorded many demos for an intended debut LP entitled The Leather, The Loneliness And Your Dark Eyes (which became the title of René’s 1992 solo album) but the recordings remain unreleased. The only official Idle Flowers release was the excellent Plimsouls-esque All I Want Is You / Fizz Music single back in 1984 on the Miles Ahead label recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios.
