Wednesday-Thursday September 16-17
The day started at 08:30 am with Janne Mattsson from Sweden Rock Magazine calling me to do an interview about the release of my album Royal Mess. We had a nice chat for about 30 minutes. Guess it will be published in the next issue (?) Ola Gränshagen will probably do the review of the album in Sweden Rock Magazine.
Looking back at the last week:
Rehearsals with Martina Edoff and preparation for the tour in Canada and USA.
I´ve also been recording for the forthcoming album with Last Autumn´s Dream (L.A.D.) that will be released in Japan in the middle of december. I layed down the last bass tracks in the last minute…
My album Royal Mess will be released on september 25th on Melodic Rock Records in two versions; one ”ordinary” and one ”Special Edition” with one bonus track, and now the album will even have a Japan release on Marquee Records before christmas ! It´s gonna be released at the same time as the new L.A.D. Album. They wanted another bonus track so then we had to make a third version of the booklet !
One more dream has come true for me with the japanese release ! For many years I´ve been collecting japanese versions of the albums that I´ve played on, and now to have my own album with that ”Obi” and the japanese characters is absolutely fantastic to me !
Things like this really brings out the little boy in me ! 🙂 I´m so happy about it ! 🙂
The gig at the release party at Café Opera, Stockholm, for Martina Edoffs new album was great !
Many friends and people from the music business were there spreading a lot of good vibrations enjoying the evening. !
Off to Arlanda Airport Stockholm ! Me, Stefan Bergström and Jocke Niehoff took a common cab out there. First we flew to Reykjavik, Iceland for the connect flight to Canada. First to Edmonton and then we had to wait there for 3 hours for the last connect flight to Saskatoon.
When we finally reached Radisson Hotel, Saskatoon I had been awake for about 24 hours…. I just can´t sleep on airplanes……… I watched the movie ”JFK” about the murder of John F Kennedy and wrote for my blogg, listened to music and just relaxed……
Me and soundengineer & good friend Göran ”Ernie” Ernlund shared room.
This is gonna be so much fun !
