esto es lo que piensa john norum sobre los 80.
When asked what period of the band he would go back to if he had a time machine, Norum replied, "Well, now is the best time we ever had in this band. We get along great, we have a great time making records, we're going on tour, playing shows. But if I had to choose a different time period than now, I should say [2004's] 'Start From The Dark' album, when we started the reunion thing. I mean, the '80s
was the worst time ever. It was horrible. I mean, the whole image thing was dreadful. We became like a teeny-bopper, bubblegum band, and I didn't want anything to do with it. I'm not a fan of '80s music at all. I can maybe [name] one or two bands I can listen to from the '80s. When the '80s was over and the '90s started, I was very happy. POISON were gone, CINDERELLA, WARRANT… All that stuff was over with. I was, like [lets out of sigh of relief], 'Oh, finally, it's over. All that junk.' Productions were bad, the albums sounded bad, the songs were cheesy. But there were a few ones that were good. I mean, GUNS N' ROSES were good. They came out with their first album in '87, I think. That one's still a classic; that's a great album. And then VAN HALEN did good albums in the '80s. And AC/DC did good albums in the '80s. But they were different; they were not glam-rock bands — they were more classy, they were better musicians, better players. But anyways, to answer the question, 2004 was a great time [for EUROPE]. And 2005. And 2006. And 2007. Up until now, it's [been] good."
