Re: STRATOVARIUS LOT OF VIDEOS FROM YOUTUBE

Found this interview from 2004, if somebody can add some English subs, I can only understand their names :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Yiy_DbTRzU There's hardly anything new and interesting. The interview was done when the publicity stunts were going. "Fistfight" between TT and TK, TK and ...

In his new book Tolkki says he didn't fire him, but Jari himself wanted to leave b...

Re: Timo Tolkki's Avalon Pt. 3 and tour

Let’s talk about the books you’ve written … you’ve just released “Loneliness Of A Thousand Years” and a formal autobiography, “Hymn to Live-Entr’acte”. Without going too deeply into the details, what can you tell me about these books? Yeah, let’s talk. However, the latter one has never been publish...

Ah, I just remembered. Did he ever give away his guitar? I feel like he didn't. It looks like Luthor was out of luck on this one. Lehtiniemi says that Tolkki promised him payment. ”Because I believed money to be tight, it was arranged that I receive my payment in the form of two guitars. In the end...

He hopes a temporary "Strato United" could take place so that they could release a live DVD with that lineup. But he says neither him nor the r...

Re: Loppuhuipennus klassisella kokoonpanolla?

Omasta mielestäni olisi aika kyseenalaista vetää viimeinen kiertue vanhalla kokoonpanolla.

Re: Petition to change 'Stay-ee-ay' to 'Staaay'

Since Kotipelto wrote the lyrics how can this be about Tolkki's dog??? To my understanding, Tolkki always gave his Strato compositions a title, even if it was someone else who did the actual lyrics. And yeah, Kotipelto said the lyrics are about an impossible relationship. btw, "Rape" is a rather co...
