Frontman Rui Duarte stated:
Already 20 years since the first edition of “Thoughts”. Seems everything went so fast … I made so many friends and lived so many experiences that I am today, undeniably, not just an element of RAMP, but someone who shares the ideals surrounding this extended family. The music and the people have always been the biggest motivation. Respect, sharing dreams and become the thread of something that overflowed the simple route of a musical group.
The revision of history had been the target of many (and repeated) requests and illogical to deny her existence that imposes its own right.
For me, the issue of “XXV” of RAMP is not a compilation of themes. It is, above all, a recap of the experience and the moments of a family that grew, smiled, cried, but always kept in my heart the most important: the passion for music and life.
