“The King” awarded with Guldklaven


Just got the news that “The King”, written by Fredrik Kempe and me and performed by The Playtones in Melodifestivalen 2011, was awarded with Guldklaven (the biggest dance band price in Sweden) tonight. Yaaayyy! I couldn’t be in Malung, where the award gala was held, because of a bad cold. Feeling much better now. 🙂

Off to LA


Hi, tomorrow morning I’m off to LA again, with my family this time. A little vacation, a little writing, meeting and greeting./P
