The tour was great, and the end was even greater, we played the last show at SWEDEN ROCK in front of 20,000 people, it was amazing, also LEIF SUNDEN sung a song with us. It was almost like the stage we played on was an MSG STAGE, after our performance ALEX HARVEY BAND played with CHRIS GLEN and TED McKENNA, then TED NUGENT played with BARRY SPARKS, then WHITESNAKE played and as you probably know COVERDALE was almost the singer on the ASSAULT ATTACK album. It was very cool. I can't wait to tour the USA and JAPAN with this line-up, it should be very successful.[06/10/06 update No.2]

Jari just called me on the tour. He told that British and Spanish shows were very nice. Especially in Madrid there was a wild audience. About 2000 people hit their hands and screaming loud. I guess that was a great party.[05/29/06 update]
I'm proud of Jari, Michael and whole MSG. They have been doing fine work already one mouth - in every day!!! Jari was cheerful and he sends the best wishes to all MSG-fans!

The interview is quite similar to other ones recently published or reviewed by you (how the new album was born, how difficult was to count with all the singers, the problems of the last tour, the problem with the Heavy Hitters album...), but there are a couple of pieces of information that are quite interesting and new for me. The first one is that there are possibilities of a new album with Scorpions and/or Uli Jon Roth: 'There are possibilities and probably we'll do it. History is just so, it happened the same with Lovedrive, life leads you three steps forward and two steps back'. And, the second one is that he is preparing a new album with his brother ('We have already got some guitars. We are preparing some material that will be edited under the name 'Schenker brothers', very classic, in the line we're always been (...) Now everybody is reuniting and I suppose it's normal we do it too').Personal Notice: My grandfather just passed away on my birthday. I might become slow to respond for a few days. I will do the best I could, so contact me as always. Hope everybody would cheer me up with some news about MSG shows etc.

I just spoke on the phone with Michael and Jari. Michael said everything goes very well. Yesterday (i.e., May 6th due to time difference) MSG did a show in Kavarna, Bulgaria and there were about 4000 thousands people. I guess there's a very good feeling on tour now. Michael sent the best wishes to all his fans!Thanks, Arto!! As you may have noticed on the jacket of Tales of Rock'n'Roll and Revolution Mind CDs, Arto is credited as a Assistant Producer.

Greetings from Finland! I'm Arto Laine. I wanna tell you a little story on 'Tales of Rock'n Roll'-album.[04/19/06 update]
I sent two MP3-songs and introduced Jari Tiura to Michael in May, 2004. Michael liked Jari's voice and sent us about 51 minutes his music in CD-format (guitars, bass and drums). We worked with this material at my little homestudio about 4 mounts. Jari sang 15 demosongs and I sent them as MP3-files - song by song to Michael. Jari and I flyed to Arizona on December 31, 2004. Jari sang the final versions at Saltmine Studio in January 2005. 'Angel of Avalon'-song: the melodies by Jari and the lyrics by Leif Sundin. Jari is a powerful singer. When he has the feeling, he is amazing! He reminds me of legentary singers in 70'.
Michael asked me in October, 2004 if I have any ideas for album title. I and my friend Jorma thought 'Tales of Rock'n Roll' would be fine for album title. Finally, I gave Michael three titles. Michael decided 'Tales of Rock'n Roll' would be the best one.
I have been listened to this album thousands times. I think it includes many great songs. It's a very interesting album cos there're a new singer Jari and also all original MSG-singers. Thanks for Michael's patience.
This album is the best Michael can give to his fans. As Michael said: 'this is a perfect Anniversary-album'! I'm sure people will love this album.
Peace and Love!
