Hmm, I have to admit I don't exactly remember who had the idea to cover Mr Sandman, I think it was Hansi, but we all like to mess around with such songs, as we did with Barbara Ann or Sufin USA. And about that guitar on our DVD, this is a cusom built ESP, obviously based on a Les Paul, but with a Floyd Rose, it is from my times as an ESP endorser. It is a good guitar and I still have it, but I am not really using it anymore, I prefer my Gibsons.


Is your ESP Eclipse a "typical" Eclipse with a thinner body (in comparison with your Gibson Les Pauls) or is it a "Full Thickness"

No, it is a bit thinner compared to my Gibsons, though it is also no regular "stock" Eclipse.

I couldn't get to your Koko gig in London. I saw Testament and also Stratovarius and Hammerfall there. I really like the venue. Any chance of you playing Nottingham Rock City? I live right by it biggrin.gif
