About Ronnie Atkins‘ guest appearance, mastermind has previously stated:

“I have been a huge fan since I was a teenager. I already asked Ronnie to be on the Opera in 1999, but he was busy back then. Last year I saw Pretty Maids and they were a steam train on stage – unbelievable! After the show we met and Ronnie was a great guy.  Finally after 13 years, I am really proud to have on the new album. And his kick-ass performance leaves no doubt: It was a great decision to ask him!”
