Profile When Europe decided to take a break in 1992, Ian gathered his old band Trilogy again. The history about this band started already   in 1979/80, but they called themselves Toxic at that time. The band was dissolved in 1984 when Ian joined Europe as a full time member. Their inspiration was taken from Rush among others, which you can hear on the many instrumental passages. In 1994 they released their debut album called “Lust Provider”. The last song on the album is written by Anders Tengner, from the music magazine OKEJ. The musicians are Marc Gransten on bass and vocals, Chris Hoofgard on guitar and Ian on drums ofcourse.

The album was recorded on Εland i Nitrax Studios, and was produced by Nikolo Kotzev, who later on formed Brazen Abbot. A 5-track demo was early recorded with Ian on vocals. Before the album was recorded they travelled around as a coverband, and it was on the way home from one of these gigs they had this horrible car crash, which could have cost them their life and career. Ian broke one wrist, and it was uncertain if he ever could play the drums again, but everything went fine in the end. After that Ian has been part of a lot of records, ie. Brazen Abbot, Brains Beat Beauty, Clockwise, Baltimore, Tore Skogman, and even Glenn Hughes which he also did tour with, to name a few.
