starting the first band Ciel with my friend Claes Isacson
in the year of 1978 and since then been playing with many different
bands such as Steel, The Immediates, Rumble Fish;
the coverbands Palt Fiction and Roadcrew, to name
just a few - I wanted to start a music project writing my own
music again. This started in the year of 2003 after meeting the
awesome keyboardplayer Jens
Johansson of Stratovarius
at the Piteå
Dansar & Ler Festival. I have for several years been
escaping my inner demons with the "help" of alcohol,
so when I, after that festival, finally decided to skip partying,
I wrote the music to all the songs on my demo "The Sacred
Dragon" in one week. The experience was like an explosion.
Suddenly, with the new focus in life, these songs came out from
the dark, so to speak. The lyrics of "Into the Shadow"
is about drinking problems.
of Stone is music from my heart, but due to all of the talented
musicians that I'm fortunate to have with me in "The Tower",
I am happy to see that their hearts are into the songs
as well. And for that, I am very grateful!
