The Songwriters – Joey Tempest
Sunday 20 October 2013, 22:00 GMT
This Sunday, David Randall chats to Europe frontman JOEY TEMPEST about the band’s rise and rise, on the eve of the release of the band’s latest live album ‘Live At Sweden Rock’.
GRTR! has followed the progress of the band from their more recent “renaissance”, reforming a decade ago after an appearance at an end of the Millennium gig in Sweden.
Since that time the band have released four acclaimed albums and next year will see the recording of album number 10.
This year the band celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the release of their self-titled debut album with a gig at Sweden Rock in front of 30,000 plus fans.
In our recent interview we catch up with all-things Europe and play tracks from the new album.
