You're off to see the land of dreams
Be careful, things are seldom what they seem
Cling to your hope, follow your heart
Don't lose that sparkle in your eyes
To some empty consolation prize
Stay on your course, follow the chart

And if at times you lose the light
Then let your passion be your guide

Strike a spark, fan the flame, feel it burn deep within
Let it rise and let it shine
Keep it burning day and night, guard it with your very life
Feed the fire, never let it die

You'll fly alone to reach your mark
Don't fear the silence or the dark
They'll be good friends you'll learn to love
Solitude's no sacrifice
To catch a glimpse of paradise
May you find peace and fly with the dove

And when you finally reach your star
Always remember who you are

Strike a spark, fan the flame, feel it burn deep within
Let it rise and let it shine
Keep it burning day and night, guard it with your very life
Feed the fire, never let it die
Feed the fire, never let it die

John Kay, 1996
Favorite Artists

AC/DC
Old time favourites, one of the bands that got me hooked on hard rock and metal.

Blue Öyster Cult
The best kept secret in rock someone said, probably true. A band that never ceases to amaze me. The diversity, the mood, the musicality, the originality. Pure genius.

Jim Steinman & Meat Loaf
Gotta use the phrase 'pure genius' again. And perhaps it's here it belongs if anywhere. A crazy ride through heaven and hell so ironically bombastic it becomes the most serious thing you've ever heard.

Kansas
Master craftsmen of the progressive arts. Breathtaking melodies and arrangements. Goes straight to the heart.

Magnum
The pride of the british isles. A whole world to step inside, storytelling at its best. You just get lost somewhere when you put on any of their records. And still going strong with all their magic left.

Favorite Albums

AC/DC - Blow Up Your Video
Most certainly not everyone's choice, but to me this was pure magic. I liked the sleazy tone of the record, a little bit more commercial but still classic AC/DC. One of those records you wanna party to.

Blue Öyster Cult - Club Ninja
Not the most obvious choice either, but just listen. Great melodies and moods, once again with Pearlman behind the rudder. Spy In The House Of The Night, Perfect Water and Madness To The Method - As good as it gets.

Jim Steinman & Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell II - Back Into Hell
When I got this record I wasn't a fan really, but afterwards I was in chock. I listened to it over and over again every day after school, not doing anything but listening. And boy, I was lifted, physically speaking. This record was with me in spirit for years, wherever I went, and I can still recall that feeling on occation.

Kansas - Monolith
Not their greatest effort musically, but there's something about this record. Perhaps it's the sleeve, perhaps it's the melancholic feel to it, I don't know. But magic it is. Have Steve Walsh ever written a more convincing song than Angels Have Fallen?

Magnum - Wings Of Heaven
Magnum's biggest production and their most prominent try for stardom. Those factors often mean less soulfully crafted music. Not in this case. The big production really works in favour of the band, with Magnum sounding better than ever. A very memorable album with fantastic lyrics by Tony Clarkin.
