Kee is a great guitarist, but he has lost another opportunity to shut up in occasion of his interview to SpazioRock here in Italy. It looks like he doesn't have other arguments rather than Europe in the past and how bad they are today with their production...
I was curious about this interview, so I searched for it and found it:
It's in Italian, so I had to use Google Translate to translate it to English... and here's one part of the interview that I think Michaela was referring to:
The new album is coming out on Frontiers these days. What can the fans expect and what does the title "Scaling up" represent to you?
You know, I happen to talk to the big names that have made the history of rock every day, and everyone seems to radiate that feeling of decadence and decline because they have experienced the splendor of the past. And 'as if everyone were already focused on the board, on being the holidays and go to relax ... I do not think even remotely! I'm in full creative ferment, I want to create, to climb the peak of success! That's why the title "Scaling up". I have the energy, I feel at most 22 years, I hope to break your boxes for at least another two decades!
As for the album ... see I have been a part of Europe. And I liked to make music with them. But everything they have released after the reunion ... well, it's so boring. The other day at my show "Rock of '80s" at Globen in Stockholm there were twelve thousand people, it was sold out, you know? After the show, at the release party, I met Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli... and I said to them, "Your new albums suck!" The point is that I don't think the albums are good enough, when you think about what great and brilliant musicians they all are and what a spectacular singer Tempest is! That being said, I too was a boring bastard for about ten years, I was looking to experience ... but with this album I would say that I have. That's who Kee Marcello is: hot melodies, nice song writing, excellent production, extraordinary musicians ... think that the other day a title on a Swedish newspaper article came out which stated that: "Kee Marcello is more Europe than Europe", you know?
