To tour with Skid Row and to play the Tokyo dome...

How did you hook up with the other members of the band?

Your new CD single is just fantastic "Riot in Everyone." I can't wait for the full length CD, How is the new CD coming along?

As growing up what musician, did you admire?
My biggest influence has always been Sebastian Bach...He's the only Marshall mouth there is...

Seems to me that Sweden is the country that is bringing back the best of 80's metal in a new style like CrashDïet. How is the music scene there?
Yes that is true...Sweden is like LA in the 80s and there are a lot of great bands from Sweden, Crucified Barbara, Loud n nasty, Paradice, Darkhaagen, Starlet suicide, and so on...almost every band formed today in Sweden goes with the ozone killer hair-do, The bigger the better...
