 When asked about  recording and performing  with Avantasia
"Tobias Sammet typically writes for the singer, he writes something within that singer's range and melodic interests. Tobias is very talented, very easy and wonderful to work with. During the writing process we send each other ideas back and forth, the virtual studio, the Internet. Then when we get close to where we like it, we meet up at a physical studio, in this case in Frankfurt, Germany and record it there.
I am having a great time not only in the recording studio but out on the road touring. The band rehearsed for abut two weeks before all the singers came then we had a week of rehearsals with the singers and then we hit the road. "

When asked about his new project 'Sweet Oblivion' and it's musical Direction 
"It's the name of an album I did with a wonderful Italian guitar player named Simone Mularoni he and i put this album together .Some of the songs are kid of reminiscent of older Queensryche."

When asked about his current tour playing all of the Opertaion Mindcrime album
"I started touring the Operation Mindcrime album in it's entirety as a 30 year celebration of the album . The tour went through 24 countries and I am still doing dates and I think it ends in June 2019 in North America about two weeks left. Then I think I am finished touring with that and I can do something else."
