  • (00:45) You released your latest album "Dead End Kings' end of August, for me, it has once again become a great album that I've given you 10 of 10 points. What is the response of the rest of the press?
  • (01:36) The songs on the new album fit together very well, it was planned as a concept album? Or is it just the natural songwriting process that everything fits so smoothly into one another?

  • (09:41) You are happy with the Line6 HD Pro sound? Or do you prefer more the real Tube sound for the Live gigs?
