Greatest gig experience: I sang together with Vinnie Vincent from Kiss, Also performed in front of Björn and Benny from ABBA, Warming up for Alice Cooper on his Trash tour. Also did backing vocals together with Andy Scott from Sweet!
What I Like: Good food!!!! Not on some five star restaurant!! I like food cooked for a man!! Of course my family, I also love to be alone sometimes and do exactly what I want!
Influential CD's: Kiss - "ALIVE", Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe - "Barcelona", ABBA - "The Album", Judas Priest - "Painkiller" (As you see I'm not so much up to modern hard rock. Probably getting old.....) For me it's about melody and crunch!!
How did I end up playing music: Well, I wanted to be a hockey pro but did not really have the skills (Even though I was pretty good). My father was an opera singer so it came very natural to me to start singing. From the start it was a ticket to meet so many girls as possible (Yes it works!!) But today I've had the same groupie for two years and I'm very happy with that!!
