Marcello released his controversial autobiography, "The Rock Star God Forgot", in Sweden on October 19, 2011.

Marcello made headlines in the biggest Swedish newspaper with a painfully honest interview about the memoir, which is said to be "the first sex, drugs and rock and roll book ever written by a Swede."

"The Rock Star God Forgot" is scheduled for release in the rest of the world in English during 2012.

On October 21, 2011, Marcello released an album, "Redux: Europe", featuring several new tracks alongside modern, heavier-sounding re-recordings of hits from Marcello's previous bands Europe and Easy Action. Also released on the same date were remastered and repackaged versions of Kee's two earlier albums, "Redux: Shine On" and "Redux: Melon Demon Divine".

When asked why he chose to re-record Europe songs, Marcello said, "'Redux' is Latin for 'reclaim' or 'take back,' and that's what I'm doing here. These songs are part of my past and I wanted to bring them into the future."

A video for the song "Redux: Europe" can be viewed below (lower).
