On November 3, Jason Saulnier of the MusicLegends.ca web site conducted an interview with former EUROPE guitarist Kee Marcello. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Marcello released his controversial autobiography, “The Rock Star God Forgot”, in Sweden on October 19.
Marcello made headlines in the biggest Swedish newspaper with a painfully honest interview about the memoir, which is said to be “the first sex, drugs and rock and roll book ever written by a Swede.”
“The Rock Star God Forgot” is scheduled for release in the rest of the world in English during 2012.
On October 21, Marcello released an album, “Redux: Europe”, featuring several new tracks alongside modern, heavier-sounding re-recordings of hits from Marcello‘s previous bands EUROPE and EASY ACTION. Also released on the same date were remastered and repackaged versions of Kee‘s two earlier albums, “Redux: Shine On” and “Redux: Melon Demon Divine”.
When asked why he chose to re-record EUROPE songs, Marcello said, “‘Redux’ is Latin for ‘reclaim’ or ‘take back,’ and that’s what I’m doing here. These songs are part of my past and I wanted to bring them into the future.”
“Redux: Europe” will be released in the rest of the world on Friday, January 13, 2012.
A video for the song “Redux: Europe” can be viewed below.
In early 2012, Kee Marcello will embark on a European tour with the following lineup:
Kee Marcello: Lead Guitar, Lead Vocals
Jonny Scaramanga: Guitar
Ken Sandin: Bass
Paul White: Drums
