Biography

Marko Perkovic (born October 27. 1966.) is a Croatian musician and is the lead singer of the band Thompson since 1991. He is often identified with the band itself being his stage name. The name originates from the Thompson submachine gun, a nickname given to Perković during his time in the Croatian war of Independence.
Perkovic’s songs are often marked with Christian and historic themes, and often include folklore elements.

His own claim to sing about three big loves: God, Family and homeland, are not simply a self-defence statement, or a political manifesto: a lot of his most successful (and most appreciates by critics) songs deal about religion: Radost s Visina (Joy from Above), Neću izdat ja (I will not betray/give up), Dan dolazi (The day is coming), Početak (In Principium); or his own family and birthplace: Vjetar s Dinare (Winds from Dinara, Sine Moj (Oh, my Son), Moj Dida i Ja (My Grandfather and I).

Marko Perković has said that he is personally a fan of Nightwish, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and Dream Theater among others.
