Avatar Frontman Mindful Of Impact On Fans' Lives


(TeamRock Radio) Avatar frontman Johannes Eckerstrom says he's happy the band's music can have a positive impact on people's lives - but he won't take the credit for it. Revealing that he's been told by some fans that Avatar's music saved their lives, Eckerstrom says that the real heroes are the people who have turned their lives around - and not the musicians who provide the soundtrack to their recovery.

Eckerstrom tells Metal Hammer: "I've received letters from people saying, 'Your music saved my life.' If you've been through something where staying alive became hard, then you are the survivor - you're the one who fought and lived to tell.

"I provided the soundtrack, but I don't want the credit. Maybe it's better to say that music provides people with catharsis - that it triggers a response that they interpret in their own way." Read more here.
