October 1st

We went off from Peking towards Shanghai with the fast-train. It took about 6 hours. But it was a very pleasant trip and I did some work on my laptop and as always we had a good time chatting with each other.
We arrived to Shangai about 10 pm and got to Holiday Inn Hotel just before the restaurant closed so we could order some food. Then I went straight to bed. (Afterwards I heard that after I left there were some mess down in the restaurant with the staff yelling at each other….. but that´s another story)

In the dressingroom right before the show in Shanghai

October 2nd

Woke up at 10 am. Christian and I went out for a walk in the city and then the staff from the local promotor took us to a restaurant for lunch. From Thomas I got to know about an app that finally could take me to Facebook so I could publish some photos and a blog-update.

At 6 pm we went to the Midi-Festival a bit outside the city. A very big festival with lots of bands playing there. Everything was really well arranged. We had some really crazy moments in our area we used as a dressingroom before the show. I was laughing so much at Christian, Thomas and Linnéa when they were turning the place into a nuthouse !! I filmed some of it ! 😀

With Jesse, our local tourmanager in Peking & Shanghai.


At 08:40 it was showtime ! It was really overwhelming to get out there in front of the cheering of 10.000-15.000 people.

The gig was really great and everything worked perfectly. I really had to ”stop” for some moments, look out at the crowd and think to myself: ”Holy Shit – I´m in China !! This is really amazing” !!!
The audience was crazy about us and I saw many of the people singing along in the lyrics.
I had my Iphone prepared and filmed the audience before we left the stage.

We went back to the hotel and Jesse fixed som food for us, and then to bed.



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

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.
