Supposedly being the key word! Relying on anything TT says with his track record is a bit naive.

Re: New Stratovarius drummer (your thoughts or preferences)

Haven't read the thread so I don't know if he's been mentioned already but this guy could really take Stratovarius to the next level.

Re: To bring an end to the Tolkki vs Lehtiniemi scandal

How anyone could give TT the benefit of the doubt after all the BS he's pulled is beyond me. I'll give him this though: he knows how to word his statements to pull the heartstrings of the more gullible element of fan society.

Re: Maybe one of the hottest Jens pics ever

Right a quick translation, hope I got most of it: We were going to Japan again with Yngwies band Rising Force where I was the drummer. It was a long flight, 14.5 hours nonstop from New York City to Tokyo. Jens, who played keyboards for the band and who is my sick brother, was afraid of flying. He bo...

Yes, Ozzy I'm sure you know a lot about doing the morally and ethically "right ...

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: photos or video of Wolverhampton Show?

Well, in the studio power metal singers can wear loose fitting pants. Those pants let them insert the tools they need to squeeze their testicles to reach the high notes. Live, they have to wear the tight leather trousers and untying those strings at the front in order to get the nutcracker in there ...
