Life is so fragile and precious. I just listened to some of the music we played together and I still get goosebumps. Your heart stopped beating way too early, my friend. When we did Reach Out in the Czech Republic two weeks ago - I had such a fleshback and it was hard to continue the song. You were an integral part of Avantasia. You were a musician as they are rare to find, you were a great human being. You were unique! And you had your crosses to bear. We will never forget you, André!

20 years ago in summer 1999 these four long haired gentlemen met to do "büschn Rock'nRoll Operette" (quote, Markus Großkopf). Who knew that "büschn Rock'n Roll Operette" would turn into what Avantasia has become. The first incarnation Markus Großkopf, Henjo Richter, me and Alex Holzwarth. I could write a book about that time. During those rehearsals at Kai Hansen's studio in summer 1999 we arranged two albums within 6 days! We were young (not so much Markus, he was 34 and stone old even back then! Ha!!!) :) Have a lovely day, Tobi Edit: I just checked it up, Henjo is older than Markus, but back then Markus seemed to be older. Maybe Henjo has caught up on him lately?! Although amongst all of us Markus' hair style was the only one that hadn't changed since 1982. Maybe Henjo just SEEMED younger because Henjo has always been soooo young at heart. Like, 11 years old. ;) Ha! I love those pictures, so many great memories!!!

Was warm hält, hält auch kalt! Tonight 9PM - HOT SUMMER SPECIAL: Tobias Sammet Rockshow on RadioBob

20,000 fireflies! I am a blessed man, thank you for letting me do what fills me with joy. I have always been doing things restlessly, and chasing the future and making plans, we tend to forget to be appreciative of what we have here and now. That picture - done by Kevin F* Nixon - is showing such a “here and now“ moment. Life is too precious to take beautiful moments for granted. Celebrate every precious moment and try to remember to fight as hard as you can to get as close as possible to living YOUR dream, whatever that may be! But while on your journey, take your moments to breathe and appreciate! Thank you all who give me the chance to be creative and play heartfelt, old-fashioned quirky music for you!

#myohmy-Monday A picture done almost two decades ago - Trying to be f*cking Paganini or what? :) Good old days - we didn't even have a logo back then... Note the ERNIE reference the label put on there. Dropping names to get Sesame Street viewers. ;)

Shout out a happy 50th birthday to a great member of the family: FRANK LINDENTHAL He did some early work with Avantasia, he recorded Edguy’s Vain Glory Opera in two days without rehearsal, saved the production and paved the way for all our careers because he was professional when no one of us was. He is the friend who made it possible for me to see my first Helloween concert in the early nineties when I was too young to drive. And quite Fränkly - ha: One of the greatest people out there. Here we are hanging out during the production of one of our early Edguy demos. And now this young curly man is 50… Time flies! HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANKLIN DENTAL!
