Story behind the songs

Many years ago, I read in a history magazine about a strangely unknown hero. His name was Stanislav Petrov. He was a part of the Soviet Union and lives in Russia now, and happened to save the world basically…

Long story short, he stopped the world from entering av nuclear war. Several years later, I thought about him and decided to write a song about it. The story was so good and he deserved more recognition in my opinion.

Stanislav Petrov

We played this song live and it has gotten a great response. It has a very good chance of ending up on our new album!

So imagine my surprise the other night when I turned on the TV and cam across a new documentary about him titled The Man Who Saved The World. Luckily for us, we have another title in mind 😉

It’s great that he now gets a larger recognition for his bravery and belief in humanity.

Until next time, take care, rock on and remember.. you always have a choice!
