KAI HANSEN Comments On New HELLOWEEN Album
October 20, 2005, 15 years ago
In recent interview with BW&BK;, GAMMA RAY founder and former HELLOWEEN guitarist Kai Hansen commented on his old bandmates calling their new album Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy and pushing it as part 3 of the classic Keeper albums/saga from the '80s:“I don’t want to say anything bad about them and I wish them a lot of luck, but for myself, if it was me I wouldn’t do it,” says Hansen. “It puts too much pressure on the band and the new album will always be compared to the old ones. That’s a very hard thing to live up to and the danger of disappointing people is just too high. People were judging it before they even heard a note because many people are very nostalgic, and I think that with someone other than Michael Kiske singing on the album it’s hard to win.”
Watch for the complete story in BW&BK; #93, due out in November.
