Timeline of Joey Tempest


Of his song writing Tempest has said, “Dreamless and Magnificent have a lot of London in them. Losers is influenced by both London and Dublin. Living there can be very intense, almost chaotic. They’re tough cities and I’d never have written the lyrics I did without living there.” Some lyrics can also be related to his homeland, reflections on living abroad, and learning to live with new people.


Tempest currently lives in London, England with his wife Lisa Worthington and sons James Joakim and Jack Johnston Larsson. Tempest talked to Bruce Dickinson about his decision to live in London on the latter’s BBC 6 Music radio show in 2009. He does not have any social media pages apart from the official ones for Europe listed on their website. Asked in 2009, by the BBC’s Liam Allen, “Are you ever embarrassed by some of the hairstyles and clothes you wore back in the day?”, Tempest replied, “Not really, we were very young, we were MTV generation – we were one of the biggest bands on MTV. I just wanted to look like Robert Plant, to be honest.”


Nearly 12 years since disbanding, Europe announced that they would start making a comeback with the same lineup since The Final Countdown was released. In 2004, Europe released their sixth studio album titled Start from the Dark. The follow-up, Secret Society, was released in 2006, Last Look at Eden in 2009, Bag of Bones in 2012, War of Kings in 2015, and Walk the Earth in 2017.


In the autumn of 2002, Tempest released his third solo album named after himself. The production team behind the album was “DeadMono”, consisting of Malcolm Pardon and Fredrik Rinman. The team also worked with Eskobar, Lisa Miskovsky, and Stakka Bo. Also collaborating on the album were Chris Difford, former Europe member Mic Michaeli, and guitarist Adam Lamprell. The first session took place in Konk Studios, The Kinks old London studio, where Tempest jammed with English musicians, who had formerly played with Massive Attack. This session produced “Magnificent”, “Kill For A Girl Like You” (B-side of the first single “Forgiven”) and “Sometimes”. Work continued in Stockholm, this time with Swedish musicians, including Mic Michaeli. “Superhuman” originated from this session. After that, Tempest kept on working with Adam Lamprell in a temporary studio in London.


Tempest’s second solo album, Azalea Place, was released in 1997. The next solo album was recorded in Nashville by producer Richard Dodd, known for producing artists such as The Travelling Wilburys and Tom Petty. Where A Place To Call Home had Tempest writing all the material, the new album was written together with others. Among these were Chris Difford from Squeeze and Will Jennings. “Azalea Place was mostly written in the studio and was therefore more improvised and experimental”, Tempest commented on the production. “The Match”, “The One In The Glass” and “If I’d Only Known” were released as singles. “The Match” became one of the most played songs on Swedish radio and the album achieved gold status.


In 1995, Tempest’s solo debut album, A Place to Call Home, was released. He recalled it his “singer/songwriter album”. The album, which was produced by Dan Sundquist, was recorded in Stockholm and London using Swedish musicians. Europe bandmate John Norum guest-starred on one of the tracks. Tempest also played guitar on the album. A Place to Call Home sold platinum in Sweden, and it was a big success internationally.


After Europe went on hiatus in 1992, Tempest released three solo albums. The first album, A Place to Call Home featured a guest appearance from John Norum on the song “Right to Respect”. Several songs on the third album, Joey Tempest, were co-written by Mic Michaeli.


During the years with Europe, Tempest wrote numerous international big hits. “The Final Countdown” was the biggest; it topped the sales chart in 26 countries, sold 15 million copies, was played at the closing ceremony of the 1987 EuroBasket and 1988 Summer Olympics, became the musical theme of the millennium celebrations and a ringtone in hundreds of thousands of mobile phones across the world. After The Final Countdown, Europe released two more albums, Out of this World (1988), and Prisoners in Paradise (1991), before their final concert in March 1992. Europe ended their final tour in Portsmouth and did not perform together again until New Year’s Eve, 1999 to 2000.


Tempest played the keyboards on the first two Europe albums before the band decided to recruit keyboardist Mic Michaeli in April 1984. A couple of years earlier, Tempest had borrowed a keyboard from Michaeli and used it to compose the main keyboard hook of the song “The Final Countdown”. After a jam session in 1985, Michaeli and Tempest co-wrote the ballad “Carrie”. Later that year, Tempest wrote the soundtrack for the Swedish film On the Loose, as well as the song “Give A Helping Hand” for the benefit project Swedish Metal Aid, in the spirit of Band Aid. The song was produced by future Europe bandmate Kee Marcello. In 1986 Tempest wrote and produced the album One of a Kind for Tone Norum, John Norum’s younger sister. Tempest also collaborated with John Norum on the single “We Will Be Strong” from Norum’s album Face the Truth in 1992. This was Tempest and Norum’s first collaboration since Norum left Europe in November 1986.


In 1979, Larsson settled in with a self-created stage name, Joey Tempest – inspired by William Shakespeare’s tragicomedy The Tempest. He formed the band Force with guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno. Force immediately began building a reputation and a fanbase in the suburbs of Stockholm. In 1982, they changed their name to Europe and won the music competition Rock-SM. The first prize was a record deal with Hot Records. With Tempest at the frontman, Europe released its self-titled debut album in 1983 and Wings of Tomorrow in 1984.
