Just got back from Bulgaria, celebrating New Years Eve in the City of Plovdiv.
My good friend Nikolo Kotzev and his band had rehearsed some Jorn songs, and we also played some older classics from Deep Purple, Black Sabbath among others.
It was an outdoor event and quite cold, but we rocked on to celebrate 2016, we had a great time together and the wonderful audience kept us warm! It was great to meet Tsonko Tsonev, the former mayor of Kavarna "the city of rock" and his wife again, plus Niks wife Dona. I also want to thank Ivancka, Plamen, Ophelia, Angel, and all of you other wonderful people, always there to make me and my family feel so welcome in your beautiful country!

For those of you not familiar with Nikolos work: he has worked with some of the best singers and musicians around, and in 2001 he released an epic masterpiece, about Nostradamus.
This is a fantastic "one of a kind" piece of work that is undoubtably one of the greatest concept albums in the history of rock. My character in the rock opera is "the inquisitor" and the album features great perfomances from Alannah Myles, Joe Lynn Turner, Doogie White, Sass Jordan, Göran Edman, Glenn Hughes and many more.
A new upgraded version of Nostradamus The rock Opera with a lot of additional material, will soon be released, and to read more about this album CLICK HERE to check out Niks website.
Here's the track "Inquisition", a duet with me and Joe Lynn Turner, can't believe it's already been 15 years : YOUTUBE

I wish you all a Happy New Year, let's make 2016 a year to remember with love. Hope to see you all somewhere down the road.
