The Final Countdown is OVER, Sweden’s Europe have finally made their way to Australia for the first time in almost 40 years and we are well and truly ready for them, especially after frontman Joey Tempest‘s co-hosting/history lessons on this week’s episode of Wall of Sound: Up Against the Wall where he discusses the band’s early beginnings, inspirations/love for David Bowie and why he hasn’t made the jump to social media yet.
Podcast host Browny also grills him about the current state of worldwide reality competitions to find the next best musician/band and if he thinks it’s still a good idea to enter them, considering his band won something (kinda) similar back when they were known as Force, many moons ago.
But that’s not all, we also find out what’s in store for Australian Iron Maiden fans when the world’s only, all-female tribute act The Iron Maidens make their way down under at the end of the month, and we pay our respects to the late Chris Cornell, one year after he took his own life.
