Apr 22, 2019 Interview with Jorn Lande - Jon spoke to Jorn Lande who's coming to Australia with Avantasia You have one of the most celebrated voices in Rock and Heavy metal, you have been involved in at least a dozen musical projects, with some of the most talented singers and musicians alike, all of which received praise from critics and fans alike. A massive coffee table book with photos, interview, liner notes and illustrations of Victorian painter Grimshaw who has been very inspirational to me. The backstage area is open for you now! I'll have to come back with my wife for a holiday or something, just to see everything. I don't really do much at home, I get sloppy. I started off liking the artwork.
When I was quite young, I was very keen and finding new stuff. I'm not that young but I'm still about ten to fifteen years younger than most of those guys, Bob is in his 70s now, he seems to be the Gandalf The Grey of the whole thing! You can't just see it all in a few days. Hidden comments will still appear to the user and to the user's Facebook friends. The cover artwork was created by Alexander Jansson. You just don't want to do music at all, you just want to eat, drink and rest and all the other things in life. It has a terrific arrangement and the whole thing just clicks with the band and the audience, it's a great track.
M-R: Your work with Russel Allen is some of the best duets I have ever heard. This is the first time for me to visit your beautiful country. Now we've had four of those but I don't think will do more because it was more of a side project to be honest. Item is in original shrink wrap if applicable. He went to rehearsals for his band and I tagged along, fooling around with the instruments.
I didn't come from a metal or hard rock scene I grew up more with contemporary singers and a lot of Australian music back in the day. There're so many different elements in one song, and that's what these modern times are all about, people like a lot of things roll up in one thing. He also has a good taste in music, he bought a lot of records in the 70s that you normally wouldn't get where I grew up. I didn't expect much from this to be honest in the beginning either, but the first tour was also quite successful. I do write music at home, I mean there's always something going on.
Yet despite all the troubled waters and swirling eddies of doom that await these kinds of super projects, the H. Once you're logged in, you will be able to comment. I like to sign out of everything, you know. That was one of the records that I brought home from the import section, which allowed me to discover other Australian music like Jon English. It's even on the radio over here in Europe these long songs on the radio is surprising to hear. Metal-Roos: Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me.
Overblown is still afloat in its high-rent slip for one reason: quality song writing. Of course it's for free! I met him back then in some festival in the United States in Atlanta, Georgia, actually. With a lineup like that, you can just picture an epic wreck upon the harsh reef of reality, and yet, that yacht keeps on yachting and my admiration grows ever more profound. M-R: I would love to hear the story of how you found your voice. What is your usual maintenance schedule for your voice at home and on tour? I just do normal stuff when I am home. There is also a smaller digibook version that features one bonus track and that is limited and beautiful as well.
Now finally bringing your powerful voice to Australia with the phenomenal Avantasia. He actually still plays and is still around, but it all happened when I was a kid. My father's drummer used to have a record store and I was lucky enough to be able to borrow albums from the store. So then to me it was Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart, Cliff Richard and let's not forget your own Johnny Farnham and his Little River Band. Also some great singers to work with there's been some changes along the way which is also great. No bullshit; it's the truth. Your country has so much variation.
I've always wanted to go to Australia but have never got to do it so, finally, I can. As usual they craft some interesting foundations for the diva drama. To be on stage with so many singers that you used to listen to it's amazing. I've known Russell from the past, we used to play on some of the same festivals. I was approached to do something, and we started discussing how to proceed with things and this was one of the suggestions. That's my favourite song to sing and to interact with Ronnie Atkins and Tobias. If I go on tour it usually takes me a week to get back into shape.
But I work on the house and in the garden, normal stuff like that. How did that relationship start and how does the writing process usually go for these albums? He saw it is just as a side project in the beginning but the album took off and was very successful so he called me and asked to do the next record also. Also, all the years of work help, it's like the people have worked out a lot in the gym if they have a rest it doesn't take them long to get back in shape. So sometimes you do some package deals which is basically what happened. I never thought we would do more than one or two records but then it was quite successful. It's just so different from when I grew up with three-minute-long songs, which you had to do it because you had to consider radio play and stuff. He is a great singer I used to listen to him when I was younger in the late 80s.
