Timo Tolkii

My choice in most bands is the person that writes the music. The music made you listen to the band in the first place! :)

I voted for Tuomo Lassila. His job on the first four albums is just amazing!

No votes for Antti Ikonen. :(

It's really hard to choose the best member of Stratovarius, all of them are really good players. Finally I decided to vote for Tolkki for two reasons:

1. He's composed almost all Stratosongs, so he's given the band its own sound
2. I play the guitar (or at least I try to)

Anyways, I think that the best option would be choosing the whole band as the best group of players... that's my opinion.

Keep eatin' metal & shittin' chains! :headbang:

I think Timo Kotipelto is totally hot. But Jens is my favorite because he's the most witty. And because he blew up a toilet.

Is not simple,they're all great guys,but for me the man is Tolkki :D
Because i like every second of his guitar playing,because he wrote songs like season of change... which are beautifull for their lyircs and music,and beacuse he's a great person.

The other one is jens,because is really funny,very smart and he's the best in his instrument in metal :P

OF COURSE JENS IS GOD! :P :twisted:

Well is a very difficult poll, however i voted for Timo Kotipelto, because i think his voice gives life to the music, but wait, Timo Tolkki's Guitar also gives life to the music, then why i voted for TK, well because TK has less votes 8).
They are very talented, But i think the best band members are TK and TT, hands down

Yeah!!! You should really come to progpower! You're _soooo_ close! I bet we could find a way to harass stratovarius togeather! Jens seems like an interesting guy, Tolkki too..... would be cool to get them to sign something. Get tolkki to sign your arm and then have it made into a tattoo!!! :) mwahahahaha

During the Tolkki-Era, Dreamspace IMO, was best Album, but Twilight Time is good, too!
Tears of Ice is my fav song followed by Lead Us Into the Light&We are the Future!

And about ZELDA, The Link to the Past game on SNES is so cute! My son FINALLY solved that puzzle---a VERY fun game! :rvd:

For me, from the "tolkki" era the best song is, Hold on to your dream, i can't stop listening to that song, the lyrics, the solo, the meaning, just wonderfull a piece of art, tears of ice is a very, very and again very touchy song, because the lyrics are so sad, and the solo too is very u know kind of sad too, it almost made me cry the first time i heard it.

about Zelda, I have been playing Zelda games since i was born (I think 8) ) LOL, i just love those games, in fact i am a maniac, i have all the zelda related games, i have beaten them all, and i am going to beat them all again, but this time i am going to play listening to Stratovarius :lol:. Why do you think my nick is Strato- Link(the hero of zelda games).

BTW Zelda is the princess, not the kid.

On this i have to choose TT, for playing and composing.

I think JJ is the best Keyboard player in the world, but TT is the best composer (even i like very much the song "keep the flame", composed by JJ).
