Hello again,
We've spent some time in Stockholm rehersing for our shows in South America. Been locked up in a studio for too long. Felt really good to jam again. Can't wait to get out there.

This pictures are really amusing, because it seems the scene takes place in a cellar (is it a vacuum cleaner in one corner?). This men supposed to be stars, they just look like some teenagers! In french we would say that's "sympa".
Another surprising thing: is it a pen that Joey Tempest is holding while singing? Well, it indicates a great passion for writing, (or a big sense of efficacity: never loosing time to takes notes when a good idea cross your mind...)
Last thing: I like John Leven hairstyle on this picture; truly elegant!

All the best,

Be more careful while combing your hair !
Hair parting line is going zigzag, I found in the enlarged pic.

Cummon, Leven! I know you played your bass with TV station entrance ID card hanging on your chest in an Italian TV show in late 80's. That YouTube video made me laugh seriously. But never remove the video employing copyright matters. (TV station has the copyright? Ask them not to remove it!) We love it very much.
(And Joey also laughed pounding your chest when he noticed your ID card between song phrases. Of course I know Joey is also as careless as you, but I don't mention his anecdotes here. lol)

And once, in Start From The Dark era, you've been shot in an entire band photo standing with your right-leg's sneaker's string ON THE LOOSE ! ! ! Oh, my !
Don't walk with it or you trip and fall.

Why are you so careless? And why don't people around you, the photogragher or rest of guys, watch you? But it's OK coz your performance is always amazing.

Keep your nice character as natural for long. You're definitely the most lovable person from Europe, Mr. Universe !


With huuuuge love from a watchful fan of yours from Japan

Valérie Alma-Marie said...

bonjour Europe.
You're probably busy right now, working a lot,rehearsing for Bloodstock concert.
It'll be your triumph!
After all, you're one of The-Best-In-The-World Band, aren't you?
