I went back home to Finland Sunday morning, had 3 days off and went to Viking Grace to do gigs there Thursday-Sunday. One day off before leaving to Stavanger in Norway Tuesday morning to do troubadour gig at XO there.
I got a email from Denmark if I could come and do a gig in Aarhus, together with Thomas Dybdahl from Norway, Daniel Lemma from Sweden and Poul Krebs from Denmark in an Scandinavian All Star tribute. I just couldn’t say no, and luckily my management and the local owner in Stavanger gave me time off to do this.
So after Tuesday and Wednesday in Stavanger, in bed 2:30, leaving 4:20 I was in my first flight and heading to Denmark. I am SO HAPPY that I said YES! A fantastic band, great show and A LOT OF FUN in Aarhus Thursday, I went to bed 1:30, up again 3:45 and back to Stavanger, doing Friday night and Saturday day and night at XO. In bed 2:30, up again 3:55 and off with my first flight 6:00 from Stavanger to Helsinki!

I can be the coolest cat in town, calm and “no worries” and nobody will ever know what kind of stress I’m under. Many of you will probably now let an “ha ha yeah right” slip out or into your mind! But you still don’t know what kind of stress I’m having!
I go to a specialists to better handle and learn the stress, but even they when they get my schedule looks up and goes, wow, that’s a bit too much for anyone! I’m afraid that I’ve been living this way for many years, with my never ending tour project.
But I just can’t stop, and THAT’S the problem! It’s not that I want to run, but I have to! “Run Forest” sounds like an echo sometimes when I’m “almost there” and even I must laugh a bit.
Let me take you a bit back to the great success night with my old and ever first real band “Haft Band” in my hometown Ålesund in Norway. 19th of may 2017, totally sold out and there were MANY people who laughed and said “it will NEVER WORK!”
Well it did, and it’s another dear memory for life! To see so many old friends after more then 30 years, and all at one place “Terminalen” was FANTASTIC!! And my old band and friends we had A BLAST FROM THE PAST! All the best, you’ll get the rest later!
