Re: Tolkki vs. Romeo

As much as I love Tolkki's playing, Romeo is a beast in another level. And Romeo can pull off some great emotional songs. Most guitar players can tell, Strato songs = Hard, Symphony X = Master level of playing.

An LTD 250 or 400 might be a good choice, they play and sound great for their price.

Re: Does Helloween have the worst fanbase, ever?

I love both singer's voices, but I find Kiske to be childish and a drama queen at times, which is a shame. He's like the German Axl Rose :P

Re: Books you're currently reading

There's even a movie adaptation of it with Juliette Binoche and Lena Olin, though I haven't seen it. Julio Cortázar has basicly written short stories, right? I'm not really familiar with his stuff but my dad keeps telling me I should. Mostly short stories, though his novel Rayuela (Hopscotch in eng...

Finished Fast Food Nation a week ago, awesome if a bit gruesome book, really gets you thinking. Reading Unberable lightness of being, not too sure if that is the ...

I like Saschas sound more, and he is more creative in his solos. Though Weiki (along with Grosskopf) is the soul of Helloween
