Today, we continue the episode with Blind Guardian frontman Hansi Kürsch. His love of music and fantasy is pretty much evident in how he produces magic through writing songs based on fantasies and epics like The Stormlight Archives and The Lord of the Rings.
It’s amazing how a lot of albums have this continuity. And he explains how everything in the album should have the same vibe because they can only shine if they’re bound together. Making amazing music for 40 years now, Hansi gives his insights into artistic freedom. He is also involved in The Dark Tower series.
In this episode, you will hear:
- Using artistic freedom in writing a song based on a book series
- What makes a great colleague and a great musician
- What inspired him to base his album on The Lord of the Rings
- The hardest part of being a lead singer without bass
- How he got involved in The Dark Tower series
