Björn J.son Lindh - RIP

"Today, Saturday 21st of December I'm reached by the horrible news that Björn J.son Lindh has made the final journey. Even if I knew he was very ill I can't understand it. Not only was he an idol of mine, he also contributed some immortal playing to the "Heritage" record. I spent a few hours with him, and thought he was the coolest dude ever. His music lives on. I still listen to his solo records with great joy. J.son was an institution to the Swedish music scene. Our collective condolences goes out to his loved ones. I am currently taken aback by sadness of his passing and I'm drinking a glass of wine to his honor, listening to "Ramadan". Björn, i didn't really know you, but yet I did. Your music is in my DNA. You will live on. Lots of love from the Opeth camp."

Mikael/Opeth, Saturday evening 21st of December, 2013.

Mikael honoured for his services to music

Every year, the organization SKAP (Swedish composers and lyricists) deliver scholarships to Swedish musicians who they feel have contributed to Swedish music and culture. This year Mikael Åkerfeldt was awarded an exclusive scholarship for his services to the Swedish and international music scene.

Mikael was presented with the scholarship and diploma at an intimate event in the south side of Stockholm on the 9th of December.

"I'm quite honored to receive this. Apparently you can't apply for this scholarship, a board of legendary musicians decide that you're the right person for this award. I had never even heard of SKAP before they contacted me. I'm happy and surprised there's some focus on heavy Swedish music and genuinely chuffed that they focused in on me. Through time I've been handed some awards and whatnot, but this one resonates more in me personally. No glitz and glamour, just some appreciation for what we and I do musically. It's well appreciated!"
