Vision Bio:
Formed early 80's as ESCAPE in Stockholm. Released a private single in 1984 (as VISION) and changed name the following year to ELECTRIC SAVAGE. They released a 4-track demo in 1986 under this name. After numerous of drummers passed through, Conny Lind grabbed the sticks in early -88. At last the band felt complete and changed the name to TREZPASS. The band had hard rock-symphonic influences, and did some great gigs and recordings with good response. 1990 the band was history.

Vocalist Donald Burnett was from Scottland. He lived and worked in Sweden for a few years before moving back.

Donald Burnett Self-Bio (from
Donald Burnett, Born, Perth Scotland, 3/9/56. Went to school in Perth until I was nearly 15 years of age, then started college with a view to working in the catering industry. After one year studying full time, I got a job as a waiter in the Station Hotel, Perth. This was part of BTH (British Transport Hotels) and after a while I moved to work at the world famous Gleneagles Hotel as a chef. After working there for a summer season, I returned to Perth, again to the Station Hotel, after that I moved to Edinburgh to work as a chef at the Royal Scot Hotel, then again moved to Perth before working at Fernie Castle Hotel in Fife as a chef. Stayed there for about a year before moving to Sweden to work as a chef at Hotell Lerdalshojden in Rattvik. Moved north to Orsa, worked at Fryksas Hotell and also at the ski/holiday resort of Gronklitt. In 1982 I moved to the outskirts of Stockholm and worked as a chef at Aerochef catering at Arlanda airport.

While in Sweden I sang in various rock bands, did lot's of song writing/recording, some of which has ended up on various singles and cd's, I also recently sang backing vocals on a cd by Swedish hard rocker BALTIMOORE who has been a friend of mine since  the early days singing with THE BLACK HEARTS and THE FLASHERS in Rättvik. I sang with a Heavy Metal band from Mora, called TRYCKVÅG, played lot's of gigs with these bands which was great fun. When I moved down near Stockholm I sang with a few bands before, finally singing with a great bunch of musicians in a band called ESCAPE, we then changed that to VISION and recorded a single called 'Changes'. In 1986 I got married to a Scottish girl in Sigtuna and not long after we came back to Scotland and eventually settled in St Andrews where I got a job as Head chef at University Hall.
