About the cancellation october 9th

Cancellation in Krasnoyarsk October 9

Writing this to explain some more about it.

The workers said: ”Just give us half an hour and everything will be finished” !!! (I guess half a month would have been closer to the truth)

This day became very strange…..and sad…….
Havok and me shared room and he went to the venue with the crew as usual. After some time he came back and said the gig was going to be cancelled !! I just went ”What” ??!!!

The venue was being renovated and they were far from finished !!!
– How the hell can that be when they´ve known for months that we were coming there !??

Very strange that the promotor hadn´t been there to check what the club-owner was up to !??

Our Tourmanager TomTom checked out every possibility to do an alternative acoustic gig instead somewhere else…. But there was no chance to do it, due to practical reasons.
Instead we did a signing-session before we left, and the money from the pre-sales were given back to those who had bought them.


We went to the railwaystation and took off towards Novosibirsk.
Thomas and I shared cabin. We listened to some music from Benny Andersson from ABBA and other stuff and I continued to read my book about Ritchie Blackmore (Black Knight)
I´m so impressed by Thomas knowledge about swedish music history and all of our old songs from the early- up to the mid 19-hundreds 🙂

I have started to call Christian ”On-Off”, cause that´s how he is: Either he´s so full of energy, talking loud and running around – Or, you may found him somewhere sleeping on the floor or on a couch somewhere in the backstage-area ! 😀




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 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.
