Kommentar von Mike Portnoy:
Here it is…the very first Transatlantic music video! We shot this video this past Sept in London the day after the Progressive Music Awards. What a beautiful setting it was to shoot in!Picking a song to do a video for wasn´t easy as most TA songs are about 30 minutes…hahaha!
But Shine was a cool choice as it’s such a beautiful song with all 4 of us sharing the vocals.

Kommentar von Roine Stolt:
Big day Sept 4th – Transatlantic’s 1st ever music video – Starting the day at 6:00am in the hotel toilet in London with a stomach flu…..or wait… was the PROG awards night yesterday – too much to drink ?  or food poisoning ? – no,  it´s possibly a better option to say I had a monumental hangover as the true bad boy of prog I am – that´ll give more cred. That´ll get me more fans.

Back to reality – after a nightmarish looong drive to the chapel where we were supposed to film – finding it to be a really cool location, I can sense it´s gonna look great, trying to get some rest on the lawn while the video crew sets up  – we knew them from our Shepherds Bush  DVD filming back in 2010 – they´re really nice people. The sun is shining – I realize we´re in a sort of retirement area neighbourhood, very London – very cool – I feel like a Beatle.

Taking all the sickness in, I still felt it was a good day – and thankfully getting better by the hour.  All band and crew are so professional so it makes it an easy ride, also thankful that the song itself almost gets better with each run thru.  Now, I do not recommend improvising too much on your guitar solo or making it too complicated if you ever record a song with the prospect of doing a video later.   At least my small Swedish Neanderthal brain cannot recreate the genius of Master Stolt, it´s too many frikkin´ notes and bends and too angular, or plain weird.  I soooo wished I was Keith Richards, Neil Young or Chuck Berry.
Long day – many takes – lunch – stomach feeling better. Sun goes down – back to hotel and dinner with Mr. Morse, nice chat about music, God and life and …..good,good night‘s sleep – then heading home to the land of the Vikings.

Well kids – just another day in an insanely rich, famous and iconic rock star‘s life. 
Enjoy the ride.
