Amon Amarth Frontman Really Happy With Jocke's Work In The Band (A Top Story)

On Wednesday Amon Amarth Frontman Really Happy With Jocke's Work In The Band was a top rock story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg says drummer Jocke Wallgren is on course to become a permanent member of the band. He was revealed as touring replacement for Fredrik Andersson earlier this year, after Tobias Gustafsson was hired to record with for 10th album Jomsviking.

Hegg tells EMP Rock Invasion: "To be fair to anyone, you need to give them a real chance to grow into it - it's a rough lifestyle and it can be very aggravating. You have to make sure that you feel you get along really well, and it's the right guy. I have a good feeling about Jocke."

He adds of Gustafsson: "We asked him to help us write and record the album, because we didn't want go out and find a complete replacement, start working and then realise halfway through, 'This is not working out.'

"Tobias is an old friend and a great drummer. He contributed a lot to the end result of the album. It would not have turned out as great as it did without him." Watch the full interview - here.
