I found this site with many pics, featuring old ones with Jari Behm. I hope this is of any interest.
Enjoy!

I'd LOVE to see pics of the very first members-the TRUE original line-up that was BEFORE Tolkki!! Lassila, I think was one of the TRUE orginals. Some people are still so dumb they think Tolkki was one of the very original members. :lol: He did not come along until a couple years later! but, he gets applause because he is the longest member remaining--he toughed them all out! Thats is being strong! And, smart. :)

Thats one of those things that we'll never know, I guess. ;) You can't be that certain--life is funny. ;)

But, he did work very hard(along with the other bandmembers)to put Stratovarius "on the map" and keep it there this long. Also, give the fans some credit--if it were not for the love of fans for Strato--they would not exist, either.

No fans--No band! :)

One more Plea: Does anyone have any pics of Stafan Stahlman, or any of the other very early StratoGuys? That Fright Night one did not show up--I'm hunting for another, but no success. :(

I don't have time to look today--its the weekend! ;)

The keyboard player before Jens. Ikonen is the other very goodlooking brunette who is standing behind Tolkki!
Tolkki has his arms crossed in the pic& he is in front...... Since both guys are handsome brunettes, I had to make a distinction! ;)

This is TT, Lassila, and a guy named Lentonen, who played bass.

Its because goodlooking singers of either sex draws crowds! Plus, we know Koti has a great voice to draw either sex--TT came to his senses&realized all this! And,in spite of everything, he probably, deep inside, feels Koti is still a friend. :)

Don't believe everything you read. ;)
Those magazines exist to make money by causing sensationalism. By spreading rumors, gossip, even baldface lies, sugarcoating it with enough facts to keep from getting sued for libel. The wording they use gets them off the hook, legally speaking. This also explains why certain people can defame people on the Internet--just insult someone and add,"thats just an observation" or,"Thats just an opinion" or just use the words, "maybe/probably/I heard/supposedly" and legally a person can say anything about anyone.

The yellow press has said some VERY vicious things about StratoMess---and you have to wonder why TT did not at least try to fight what these papers were printing, because the things they said had the potential to destroy his life&reputation.

Haha.... And the only time I saw Halford look hot was on this recording of a REALLY old show. Rocka Rolla era, I think. And it was only because he looked like a woman, haha :D

On my voyages through the 'Net searching for images, I discovered that StratoPic did not start until about 1997--Visions Era. Evidently, the band did not start touring in full earnest until then. There were the short European jaunts,of course--and a Japanese tour in 1994 after Dreamspace(Against the wind Video has clips of that Japan tour)but, until Visions, tours were limited to closer to home.
I'd love to find more pics of 4th Dimension Era, as well as earlier shots.

And, I'm gonna have to arrange my links in a more orderly fashion. Right now I just have them scribbled on scratch pieces of paper stuck in a manila folder. I need to get a notebook and log them, so I'll always have them oganized&handy.
