Nick: Let me tell you, this is the first time since being diagnosed that I have consciously thought about something fifteen years down the road. It’s nice to do that and have some confidence that I will still be around!
Doogie: Great leaders and doctors and heroes leave legacies. Rock n Rollers leave broken hearts. Ronnie Dio left a legacy but he was a great man with compassion and a thoughtful mind and touched many with his music. I don’t expect to leave even 1oz of what was left behind when Ronnie died.
C J Snare: I think we all really wish that we had broken on to the scene a bit earlier. We had just arrived and it wasn’t long after that there was a changing of the guard in the music industry. With a few more years under our belt during the hey day we probably…
“Victory is a special record and i love them all…. you chose “Take It All Back” lol!! i love it too! The vocals and guitars have a “Queen” overtone especially in this song….there’s really a lot of great moments everywhere in every song and something for everyone to enjoy.”
On the morning after our first gig in Holland, I took us on a fairly long van journey on the wrong side of the road, it wasn’t until a car coming the other way around a round-about swerved around me that I realised we weren’t in England any more! We were all pretty ‘tired’ after the previous gig!..
Division is a song about how the media influences public opinion, and how many people form half-assed beliefs which they carry through to their children and friends without really thinking about it, or why.

Live I use Gibson and ESP les paul at the moment and in the studio it was the same, did the rythm git with the Esp Eclipse and solos with Gibson Les Paul. Did the rhythm git with the Peavey 5150 and solos with Engl Savage”
“We felt we were going in different directions and made the mutual decision that it was time for a change. A few of the guys felt it was not so funny anymore to be part of Evergrey and they also had a project on the side that they wanted to give main focus. Its of course a bit scary to make such a major change and we didn’t have a clue if we could find good replacements.”
“Songs like “The Pain Of The Accused” or “Doomsday” or “Compassion” would somehow never fit on an Primal Fear album. Sometimes you have a certain kind of flow or a red line which makes an album diverse and brings a lot of variety. So those songs never really fit on an album of PF.”
I was pretty blown away and very proud to have recently learned that the Worlds # 1 Promotion Man “ Pete Bennett,” whom promotes all the big superstars believes in my crossover songs and is aboard with my manager apart of the team being put into place. He’s promoted all the greats The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Kid Rock, Aerosmith…
