Tommy’s views

Tommy exclaimed that at the initial stage Tommy had a tough time in many ways and first he was happy as the eighty’s were over and the music felt were so depressing with all of the grunge and it took a hard time to run a studio and make money.  It took about eighteen hours a day; seven days a week and it almost killed him. He made a deal with the Stockholm city and they paid local bands for about four hundred and fifty dollars to be spent for making an EP in his studio. The bad economy and a few things in his life led to Tommy hitting the wall in the year 1993 and it ended up ill for ten years long. He exclaimed that it forced him to look really hard in the life but his work grew up in so many ways, which can be hard when getting into the show business at a younger age, and he would not have become a successful person if he had crossed that tough ten years. During the critical days, when he was sick he recorded a list of albums.
