Joey Tempest of Europe

Recommended Posts

When you hear that riff from "The Final Countdown," there's a good chance you're at a hockey game or some other sporting event where a pivotal moment is about to occur. Typically, we get about 25 seconds in before the song is faded and the action starts. If the music man is feeling generous, we might the opening lyrics:

We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell.
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?

Wait, what? You're leaving Earth? Heading to Venus?

Yeah, there is something celestial going on here that always intrigued me. So when Greg proposed an interview with lead singer Joey Tempest, I sent him to find out. Turns out it has a lot to do with a certain David Bowie song - you can probably guess which one.
