Re: Stratovarius: 'Keep Fighting In The Face Of Disaster'

You made them pay the debt The s e t t l e m e n t, which miraculously has been growing from 130 000 euros to "quarter of a million euros" was also my money. The actual debt was/is only around 30 000 euros and consists of legal fees. And it is your opinion that it is my fault. That is okay with me....

Re: Stratovarius: 'Keep Fighting In The Face Of Disaster'

Anyway, I hope the main point of the interview is more clear: I really don't give a fuck about all that stuff in the past, and if you can't laugh about a wasted quarter of a million euro, hey, fuck me, then you have a problem, because it's quite a lot of money. It's much healthier to laugh about it...

This was your band until you screwed it up. You screwed it up SO hard. If your somewhat biased opinion makes you feel better then good:) The things were bit more complicated than that.

Re: Timo Tolkki's review of Polaris

Really, it makes for a fascinating study on the pettiness of music fans though I'm sure any musician is more than familiar with that.

Re: Timo Tolkki's review of Polaris

I'm not saying that Tolkki should've praised the album. He is entitled to have his opinion but the thing is as soon as he says something that is just a bit negative about Strato everyone who is "on his side" starts to bash Strato and create new drama. It is a weird situation. This also works the ot...

What bugs me is that TT tried to sue Kotipelto for the using of "Hunting High and Low" on "Battle of the Choirs" but doesn't care about the DBZ Bodukai thing or the Lil Wayne song. That is actually not true. The argument was between me and Finnish MTV 4, not me and TK. I just thought they should ha...

You cant just have a new album every year or every 9 say months and expect it to be good. One may say its due to a flow of "creativity" but I don't buy that.

This ties into an interesting philosophical question: when is an individual truly responsible for his or her actions? But I suppose it's a little bit outside the scope of this thread.
