Fantástico, increíble, no hay palabras, únicos en su especie... EUROPE seguir así.

ashlynne said...

Here I am thinking of him again.
This Swedish rocker who gave no warning
As he took this world by storm. Yeah!
Wishing for a chance to meet him.

But His world doesn’t include me,
And my dreams can’t deceive me
I’ve never been able to win
So I’ll be here on the outside ..wantin’ in!

For Europe the band...good luck on your new music

Melani said...

Oh wow....that was awesome...I want more of that!

What a monster guitar tone and when the solo comes in, it just flows so beautifully.

Thanks John, you are still one of the most inspiring and melodic guitarists in a world.
