THERION: Jamaica and back to Miami

At the beach – Jamaica


The beach in Jamaica was really nice and beautiful. A local guy took care of us. Thomas & Ernie went out for snorkeling, watching the fish and the coral reef. We were there for about 5 hours. Even though I was mostly in the shade I of course burned my shoulders !!!

In the evening it was time for the Jam-Session with guys from the other bands on board.
I played with members of Venom, Annihilator, Michael Schenker, Soulfly and Primal Fear.
We first played “Highway Star” by DEEP PURPLE, and I was very glad and surprised that Doogie White came up and sang it ! It wasn´t the plan from the beginning. I was very happy about it cause he has actually been the singer of RAINBOW with Ritchie Blackmore ! Both him and I are BIG Deep Purple fans !
Then we played “Walk” by PANTERA with Max Cavalera from Sepultura and now Soulfly.

In the end I got to watch BEHEMOTH and they were really good ! Really professional and delivered a hell of a show !
They have more variations and dynamics in their music compared to other bands in their style. I also met and talked a bit both to Nergal and Tomasz from Behemoth at the jam-session and they were very nice guys.
I also went out on pool-deck to watch and listen to Apocalyptica, the crazy cello-guys from Finland. I enjoyed it ! 🙂

Live at pool deck january 25th

Back at the harbour in Miami it took a hell of a time to get off the ship, but in the end we were on our way to the hotel. There it took about over 2 hours before we could get in to the rooms !!! But they had free wi-fi and I went to buy a few pizza slices just around the corner.
In the evening we sat outside the hotel and chatted with two members of Equilibrium. They were soon going to Mexico for two gigs.

Today, january 27th, me, TomTom, Ernie and Johan went out on the streets of Miami for some shopping.
In two days we´re off to Colombia !

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

Eftersom mitt inlägg om Psykisk Ohälsa drog till sig så pass mycket uppmärksamhet så fortsätter jag nu här: ….så vad hände sen då egentligen ? Hur gick egentligen efter det att ”mitt pussel” var färdiglagt ? Och vad kan man dra för slutsatser av det hela ? Jag vet inte till 100% men det spelar

Mental illness – My Story

Much too often I meet people who feel psychologically bad. Those are people who really do have a good life practically, economically etc ….. but still they feel bad, suffering from anxiety or depression. What is really ”required” to feel good ? Or maybe just to allow yourself to feel good? It can often be
