This is a picture of one of Hasse's earlier bands called "Spellbound". Can you spot the great man:

Wouldn't be the chap at the front would it? wink
Where did you dig that pic out from Nov?
A classic eighties look, if ever there was one. Sweden's answer to Bon Jovi maybe?
I bet Hasse can't believe he has matured into the wonderful performer he is today.
That's something else I like about TFK. They encompass a wide age range. From Roine, at 51 the oldest, down to Marcus, who must still only be in his twenties. They all work so well together. Hard for me to believe Tomas is the same age as myself. In fact, he has just had his birthday in April. Must be 48 now!
Happy Birthday Tomas! cheesy

I hate fancying younger blokes! smiley wink

By the way folks, can anyone think of a drummer who wears, or did wear glasses?
Strange question, I know, but I was thinking before, just for fun, of forming a 'supergroup' of musicians who wear glasses.
So far the line up is:

Roine Stolt - guitars, vocals
Steve Hackett - guitars
Geddy Lee - bass guitar
Tomas Bodin - keyboards....


Great line up, don't you think?
But I do need a top drummer. Any ideas?

And with that request, I am off to bed!

Night all! grin

Alex Van Halen eh? Never thought of him.
However, I'm sure I've seen Phil Collins wearing glasses now and again, though he may not wear them when playing.
If he did, or does, then he is the obvious choice. My favourite drummer! (Well, he was back in the seventies. Difficult to say now!) cheesy

Anyway, I suspect the 'band' I've put together would make a grand spectacle of themselves! grin

Well now, Nikki, you mean to say you don't know how old your hero is? Thirty seven? Thirty eight? Would that age gap worry you too much? grin

Actually, he was born in 1964, so he is 43 this year, though I'm not sure what month his birthday is in.

Will that do, your ladyship? wink

Alright you lot!
Straight to the point ........ Stardust We Are ........... hmm ......... not too sure how to tell you this ........ it was not what i thought it was going to be at all ..........it was loads better than that!!! grin
Wicked! Love it! Obviously only managed to listen to it a couple of times as yet, but OMG the title track is something else hey!
My only glimpse of this track was on the DVD of course, but not the same as CD, cos you're not concentrating fully on the music really are you, what with Hasse doing his complete rock god thing! Quite a distraction!
Got to say, the bit where he sings .......
'Stardust we are, see how we shine' for the final time ......... that went straight to my heart i can tell you, just brilliant!
Of course don't know all the words yet wink but i was really singing that bit loud today! grin
Relax and breathe Nikki, relax and breathe ...... smiley

I'm sure you can too.
I forgot you are both spring chickens, and not Methusala, like me! sad

Still, age is only a state of mind

(You really don't want to see the state my mind is in!)

You little minx! Thought you were going to come out with a negative comment at first! cry

Anyway, glad you like the album. And yes, the title track is glorious, isn't it? I think it must be one of their 'big five' songs, along with:
Garden Of Dreams
I Am The Sun
The Truth Will Set You Free
The Flower King

(though there are a number of others fighting to get in there!)

And the wonderful thing is, the more you listen to it, the better it gets. wink
