5 years ago today we lost our great friend, Mike Alexander, while on tour in Sweden. He is sorely missed by all. It’s  somehow fitting that today I’m on tour with one of his favourite bands, Destruction - please raise a glass or 12 to him today. #mikealexander #evile

Death and Yes

I haven’t yet but I’ve heard it’s Prog, and Mikael knows his Prog; I’m sure it’s fantastic.

Anonymous said: A lot of people ask you why you don't like touring, I think Bill Gould summed it up with " I left home at the age of 26 and got back when I was 28. Some of my friends had moved away, some had gotten married, some had had kids. I had a hard time dealing with that. This time I'm 29, and I know I'm gonna be on the road until I'm 31. Fuck, I don't even wanna think about it."

Slightly similar, yeah. You miss a lot of the normal-life steps.
