some random stuff but also a little behind the scenes of strato story, just found out that Jari K was fired because we wanted to bring his now-wife
to a listening party and Tolkki fired him via text message. cold AF.
In his new book Tolkki says he didn't fire him, but Jari himself wanted to leave because he was unwilling to tour.
Kotipelto said JK was fired, though, according to him one day he received an SMS from TT and it just read "I kicked Kainulainen out".
And yeah, 4000 rainy nights was originally called 3000 rainy nights. The song was about his ex wife.
Kainulainen got fired by Tolkki with an SMS and Tolkki himself stated it countless time, what is written in the book is against the official version.
Kainulainen surely wanted to leave, at some point, but Tolkki is a double-faced prick.
About 4000 Rainy Nights and Kotipelto pronunciation, well, I doubt it; surely Kotipelto has a strong accent but nothing that can't be corrected while recording and I doubt he can't pronounce "three thousand", it seems like a sort of fake anecdote since the reality is that pronunciation of "four" is more delicate than "three" and adapt better but I don't really know in this matter, I'm just guessing.

I read today that in December, Tolkki borrowed somebody's guitar (Marco Tikkanen) and sold it to get plane tickets to Mexico.
Don't know if its true or not..
Tolkki has stated that the guy is a maniac and a liar but, given the previous fact, I don't believe him.
He also stole a book from Eduardo Cerda, his "manager", and put it in sale on Facebook. For what I can gather it seems possible since the guy who lent it to Eduardo commented under Tolkki's Facebook profile.
He also "tried to organize a live streaming concert" but it was postponed to 6/6/20 because of the poor tickets sales (the ticket is 8 euros or 7 dollars).
And, under Tolkki's profile, it happened to happens a shitstorm: some fans expected to have the concert for free since 7 dollars are too much (?), music and art should be free and because true fans deserve it (WTF?).
Other people blamed Stratovarius because they don't want to reunite with Tolkki or even give him some money (WTF?).
Other people, instead, started whining about other fans saying that Tolkki is a sort of God and only truest fans can understand him (WTF?).
Today Tolkki posted the same old drama, complaining about the lack of support and stuff like a primadonna but the concert was barely sponsored even on his page.
Guys, he is completely done: he stated he is writing music for Avalon IV, Infinite Visions, Saana pt. 2, Classical Variations and Themes pt. 2 and an Opera about Jesus Christ with Kiske on it; he stated he has an endorsement with ESP (strangely enough he is using a cheap Tokai and a unknow 30 dollars chinese acoustic guitar instead) and that he is going to tour whole next year. His life is, nowadays, full of fake announcements but zero facts: where is the promised album? First quarter of 2020, then second quarter, then fourth quarter and then postponed to 2021 or maybe later since he must compose for Avalon IV (Frontiers forced him).
We're discussing about nothing, blatant lies from an old and tired musician who expect to rise again without any effort because of the Stratovarius name: he doesn't even try.
