Mikael comments: "Well, what the hell!? Seems, like every other update on Opeth.com nowadays is about another sick or fallen hero. Captain Beyond was a highly influential band for Opeth. I have been a fan of theirs for many years now, and count myself lucky that I even got to see Rhino and Bobby (Caldwell, drums) perfrom live once. What a band! All that remains to be said is: Rhino, rest in peace. Your music will continue to inspire people for many years to come"
Says Mikael: ”Well, my first amplifier ever was a 12W Marshall, my second amp was a Marshall 20W, my 3rd amp was a 100W Valvestate head and 4X12 cabinet. The first 2 were stolen, the last one I had to sell to buy food and pay bills. It’s been a long and winding road since, but now I’m back to playing Marshalls and it feels like I’m back home. The Vintage Modern? Well, the name alone speaks volumes. I see Opeth as a modern band with vintage influences and this amp has everything I need. From a warm , clean jazzy tone to the most extreme metal-chug. And everything inbetween.”
