Guitarist - bassist - song writer - lyricist - encyclopedia author -

What's going on?

On August 20 (Phil Lynott's birthday) we released the first Falling Hazard single (vinyl!) as a tribute to Phil. The songs: "Old Town" and "I Lie Not" (an original).

Right now I'm also working on the new tribute album to Welsh hard rockers Budgie, I'm working on the 4th Mountain of Power album, demoing and selecting what songs to cover this time, writing new songs for the second Merryweather Stark album, working on my book on the history of Swedish hard rock, doing gigs with Falling Hazard and preparing for the Overdrive 40 year anniversary 2020!
