Former Ghost Guitarist Martin Persner On Tobias Forge: “He’s A Songwriting Genius”

During a recent appearance on the “Heavy Demons” radio show, former Ghost guitarist Martin Persner opened up about his time in the band. He also shared some praise for the band’s frontman Tobias Forge, who he referred to as “a songwriting genius.”

Persner said the following:

“I’m very proud and happy to have been a part of GHOST. It was wonderful, because we had so much fun. We learned so much, we did so many tours, we got to see so much. Apart from that… I feel kind of happy about it, because if it wasn’t for GHOST, I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m doing right now. And I’m happy doing what I’m doing right now. So, yeah, I feel proud and humbled that I was a part of it for a long time. That’s what I feel.”

He continued when asked about his “huge” contributions to the band:

“Well, I wouldn’t go so far as to call my contributions huge, because Tobias is a pop genius; he’s a songwriting genius. And I think he would have done just fine without me as well. But of course, I did have some contributions but it’s not like… I don’t wanna compare myself to him in terms of what made GHOST, GHOST. But, of course, I did have some influence.”

He also added the following when asked if he is still talks to Forge:

“None of your business. [Laughs]”
