Life is going along in a steady manner.
I'm attending karate lessons every week as well as taekwondo and going to the gym regularly. It's now possible when we are not touring. Benching 160 kg (arms in 90 degree and with help lifting the bar down). Trying to play drums an hour a day. Have to keep it up. Gigs are coming up in December. Been to Gothenburg for a couple of days last week. Bumped into Oscar and went bowling.
Oscar and Olivia. Stefan Elmgren can be seen at the bottom.
Been transfering compact cassette tapes from the past. Some funny things were found. The un-edited version of the infamous Tokyo flight, for example.
And some rough tapes from different records. The Odyssey-record is one. Some versions without singing, some out takes and covers. I like the rough mixes better. Clearer. Maybe I put something on my website. There are literally boxes full of tapes. Silver Mountain, Slem and just us guys babbling. Live tapes with Rising Force. Thousands of those.
Scanned some old pics. Here is one of my father playing bass while smoking a cigarette. He was not a smoker for long.
Been in contact with a jazz tape collector. He gave us at least 30 different live recordings with my father in different contellations. Some are for sure going to be realeased someday.
