For many of us, John Norum introduced himself through the epic solo on Europe's world wide smash The Final Countdown. That solo - equal parts blazing arpeggios and blues chops - characterised John's style which has graced most of Europe's 25 million album sales.

John speaks to us on the eve of Europe's 2018 Australian tour and discusses his early influences, the inspiration behind that solo and gives an in depth look at Europe's latest album 'Walk the Earth', recorded at the legendary Abbey Road studios.
