Well, I think it´s a very sad thing that it was no longer possible for me to be part of LoT. What happens in the future no one knows (except maybe Nostradamus or someone..) but the situation right now is that my family situation, with some very major problems concerning my son, just does not allow any time or energy to spend on anything but the family. What has become clear is a real "game changer" as the americans say. He has very special needs and, as I believe you would agree, family must come first.
But it is, extremely sincerely, a tough thing for me to do. Most of my life (last 25 fucking years) LoT has been the major focal point. It is a big part of who I am, of what I am. So, it´s quite a hard process just to realize and accept this. A big part of myself is no longer there. A quite terrible feeling, actually.
I must also say that I fully understand that Daniel can´t wait any longer for me to be able to make the next, long overdue, album. Of course he needs to do it. And I´m sure it will be great. The material we worked a bit in the last years was very promising indeed. So, all the best to him and the best of luck! I have, as of now, no idea under which name he will make the next release, and I think this is up to him to decide this matter.
