PART II

MUSIC & YOU

When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I always loved those evenings at the scout summer camp where we were singing next to  the fire. I think the first album I bought with my own money was Keep the Faith from Bon Jovi.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

No, I am still a total guitar beginner. Though improving fast now that I play with our own game. Once I performed in Sweden in front of 700 people or so, and the audience went wild! Admittedly, it was at a conference, and the people cheered for the game, not my guitar skills. Still, I felt a bit like a rock star!

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

Amongst my favorite bands are The Ark (SWE), Poutatorvi (FI) and Absolution (CH). At home I usually listen to Radio paradise, and when on my own, I listen to heavy metal music.
