THERION: December 20th-21st 2013


Kevin, Me & Johan in London 

Dec 20th
London ! Lovely City !
Here we met Thomas´ best friend Richard and his son.
Went out for a walk around the city with them.
I bought the new dvd from NIGHTWISH containing this documentary I really want to watch !
Me, Johan, Linnéa & Sami went for dinner to an Indian restaurant.
Kevin Zwierzchaczewski, our dear friend who is one of the singers from the
Experiment noQ-album also came to visit us and watch the show.
He´s so damn funny ! We laughed so much we almost fainted !!! 😀
The first thing that happens when he sits down with us in the dressingroom is
that Johan pours half a glass of Vodka to give him……..then Johan reaches for the
sodas and ask him what he wants. Kevin answers: ”Ah, just give it a splash of Whiskey” !! 😀

The show was awesome ! I didn´t expect that Therion have this fan-base here in England.
It was really a blast !
It took a long time before we could leave so there was a little party going on in the bus with
Kevin and some other friends…..

Then we set course for Holland.
I was awake until about 05:00 (am) and watched the documentary about NIGHTWISH !
I´m a big fan of them !
And the funny thing is that they were from the beginning of their career – inspired by THERION !

Dec 21
Holland (or Netherlands ?)

I spent the whole day at the venue…………It was really nothing around to see and the weather was
shitty !! So it was nice that we had this really good wi-fi !!!
My friend Frank Wijers were there and had brought his camera. He´s a really good photographer so I´m
looking forward to see his pictures !

The gig was to me, the most ”strange one” on this tour…..
It was saturday night but it seemed like a monday at noon……….
I think we did pretty well and you could actually see and feel that they really liked us.
(well, at least, I couldn´t see anyone leaving the concert…..)
Yes….it was a strange feeling even to the others……
Linnéa got so frustrated that she started to jump and run around the stage like a maniac to get some reaction…
But………maybe we´re just spoiled…? I guess they just wanted to listen and didn´t wanna ”party” or ”go crazy” as we
are used to…..

The weather was really shitty when we left and set course for the last gig in – Germany !

10 År utan alkohol !

I samma stund som jag tog första steget ut från Capio Maria, Stockholm den 2:a Februari 2011 så föll den slutgiltiga poletten ner……. Det var inte en tanke, utan mer som någon slags uppenbarelse som bara ”slog till” och plötsligt så visste jag: ”Det är slut nu” – ”Jag kommer aldrig mer att dricka alkohol

9 År som Nykter !

Då har det gått 1 år till och jag är ”uppe på nio”…. Och står där, fortfarande stadigt ! Så har det varit sen den 2:a februari 2011. Och Nej – Jag är inte ”duktig” eller ”stark”. Jag skryter inte heller om det ! – Det var ett BESLUT jag tog, och jag är tacksam

9 Years of sobriety !

One more year has passed …. And I´m still here – sober ! This has been the case since February 2nd, 2011. But No – I’m not ” that fantastic” or ”strong”. I’m not boasting about it either! – It was a DECISION I made, and I am grateful that I finally got the insight

My Last Live Performance with THERION

I did my last live performance with Therion at Brutal Assault Festival, Czech Republic August 7th 2019. I made the final decision a couple of months ago, so everybody in the band and the crew knew this was gonna be my last appearance on stage with them. The reason is that the long touring is

8 År som ”Spik-Nykter” ! Hur blev det efteråt ?

8 År ! Tiden går fort ! Och den går ännu fortare när man trivs och har kul, säger man. Och jag har det faktiskt kul och trivsamt – även om livet förstås går lite ”upp-å-ner” ibland, eller ganska ofta. Men så är det att vara människa och leva i verkligheten. Inget konstigt med det.
