Former EUROPE guitarist Kee Marcello will release his controversial autobiography, “The Rock Star God Forgot”, in Sweden on October 19.
Marcello just made headlines in the biggest Swedish newspaper with a painfully honest interview about the memoir, which is said to be “the first sex, drugs and rock and roll book ever written by a Swede.”
“The Rock Star God Forgot” is scheduled for release in the rest of the world in English during 2012.
On October 21, Marcello will release an album, “Redux: Europe”, featuring several new tracks alongside modern, heavier-sounding re-recordings of hits from Marcello’s previous bands EUROPE and EASY ACTION. Also scheduled for release on the same date are remastered and repackaged versions of Kee’s two earlier albums, “Redux: Shine On” and “Redux: Melon Demon Divine”.
When asked why he chose to re-record EUROPE songs, Marcello said, “‘Redux’ is Latin for ‘reclaim’ or ‘take back,’ and that’s what I’m doing here. These songs are part of my past and I wanted to bring them into the future.”
“Redux: Europe” will be released in the rest of the world on Friday, January 13, 2012.
