Dick : Lee Kerslake, the drummer of Uriah Heep And Ozzy Osbourne bumped several times through the years into singer/guitarist Stefan Berggren, when this Swede sang with M3 Classic Whitesnake and was opening for Uriah Heep. They became friends but a direct collaboration wasn’t possible and Mr. Berggren continued with The Company Of Snakes, Razorback and Snakes In Paradise, until Lee got in touch with him again. The Berggren Kerslake Band saw the light, and there was called on Tomas Thornberg, active in the Michael Schenker Group and John Norum, to take the bass for his account and also organist Joakim Svalberg from Opeth and Yngwie Malmsteen was invited to color in some tracks.
On ‘The Sun Gas Gone Hazy’ we hear unadulterated classic rock with, how could it be otherwise, influence of Uriah Heep and Whitesnake. This provides good songs like opener ‘Walk Tall’, where you can hear some influence of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the much faster song ‘Supersonic Dream’ and the compelling ‘My My’. The good workmanship of the men is translated to ‘Fools Asleep’. The BKB band as it should pronounced popularly delivers with ‘The Sun Has Gone Hazy’ just a good record on that is very easy to listen to, there is no weak song. Yeah, let Mr. Berggren and Kerslake do what they are good at, we’ll embrace it.
