Christmas is coming and until we find out what Mrs Rock has left in our thermal stocking this year we’re making the ultimate rockers’ wishlist.

Today Mike Akerfeldt of prog metal heroes Opeth reveals all: 

“I’m more of a giver than a getter. I have my kids who I buy shit loads of stuff for.

“If someone does buy me something it tends to be socks and underwear – the usual stuff.

“If someone did want to get me something extra special it would be a 1969 album by the producer and arranger Will Malone. I’ve never actually seen a copy in the flesh but if I did I think it would set me back about £2,000. So it would be better to receive, than give, on that occasion!”
