Anders trying to hang with rockstars

This is me hanging with some friends/rock stars. Everyone else looks really cool. I look like a freak of course. I really never had a clue about clothing or style. Check Joey Tempest out. Or Yngwie. They knew what to put on. A fun note is that Joey has a pink land line phone. Cells were not comon back then (1988). This was from John Levéns apartment in Upplands Väsby where we all grew up. The skirt I'm wereing was from my mother. "Here, Anders...some clothes before you go on the next 14 months world tour!" Well, I now understand why I never had any girls or groupies. But in general our band (Rising force) played the wrong kind of music. We had a 100% male audience since we played musician's music. When we did videos we hired girls to be in the audience pretending to be our fans.

Drumming in Studio Bohus

We are almost done recording. Today was pretty hard work. Next HammerFall album will have some fast songs for sure. But also a bunch of the normal stuff.

Drumming in Kungälv.

Me and my drums and cymbals.

The drum producer, Tobbe

At work in studio Bohus. Abba was here as well as Status quo. One of the recorders has an Abba reel (Arrival) still on.
