So...is it?

Tolkki said he had a big surprise or somethin' like that, didn't he?

Maybe cirscumstances have changed or something. But, the weeks not over yet!
Maybe its the announcement of the new bass player? ???

nah, he said that to JJ, so i don't think that JJ actually cares to know about a bassplayer for RR...

I think so. Maybe some clarifying emails between JJ and TT have changed the "threatening approach". :)

;) We will know soon enough.
Or later.

The Demos actually enhanced the sale of RR.
Jens was in Finland last weekend, so maybe they discussed things musician-to-musician. ???

No we haven't talked. But there has been enough fighting.
I will tell everything in my book that will be published by Like publishing
that published the Nightwish book as well. It will be translated in English and Spanish as well. And I will also reveal what really happened in 2003-2005. This book has been in the works for over a year already.
It comes in November and the "Stratovarius percentage" about the book is not a huge one. I will tell some tour stories, fun stuff etc..so it's not a shit stirring book at all. But I will reveal what really happened in those "turbulent" years.
What? This year already? I thought you were just planning about it and we could expect it at around year 2015. Sounds great anyway, can't wait. :)

Yup he meant Strato-book to release it later. This what he is talking about is his own lifestory book?

Buying it for sure :) Both of them :)

From the pic that was posted about JJ being in Finland. It was just assumptive guessing wishful thinking. MAYBE is the prime word here. ;)

If TT were a female, he'd be classed as a Pure Bitch! :(
Yea, it takes one to know one.

Only Iris Carrington would have thought to pull something off like this. :(

TT, you are now officially a member of Club Bitch--all membership dues fully paid and vested. :roll:

Have a nice day! :buh:

What I don't understand is... how Tolkki said and signed that right waiver and said he didn't have nothing to do with that name and now he say we'll have new stratovarius album with the old members. I don't understand anything. Maybe I'm silly or something.

He says too, that Lauri and Kotipelto are saying no to continue with the same name, don't give a shit to Jörg and Jens wants to continue with the name.

Anyway, they are gonna sound GREAT, with the same name or not.

BINGO! That is the point I'm making&NO, you are NOT being silly!

THE NEW BOOK AND TOLKKI.COM

On the contrary to some rumors, Like Publishing will release my book. The person who has spread rumors about the book is Pauliina Tuomola, who was supposed to write this book, but after I discovered together with the Publisher what she has written about me in a public web forum, we came to a conclusion that she is certainly not the right person to write the book with that amount of hostility. I was totally unaware of her writings until somebody tipped me.I talked with the CEO of Like Publishing Päivi Isosaari yesterday and we had a good understanding about the book. She had received a "threatening" email from "Stratovarius" management regarding the book. There is a reason for this email. Although the book will not contain much of Stratovarius, it will include some highlights, stories and also the truth what really happened in between the years 2004-2005 in Stratovarius with MissK, the public stage pissing of Jens Johansson, stabbing and more. All backed by evidence of course. I believe it will be interesting reading for many.

Tolkki.com has been down for some days and should be opened early next week. There has been some people asking about the webshop. If you have ordered something and you want to have your money back, please send a mail to contact@recordoffice.net and they will reimburse you. They are handling all the shippings and logistics of the shop.

Cheers, Timo

What did this Paullina woman do to deserve a threat? Hit a nerve? More tantalizing, hypocrite secrets? ;) Delete it all you want, it won't change anything.
I won't buy the book, either because I'd rather spend my hard-earned money on my family. He won't miss my 10 bucks anyway&would not have appreciated it either. I'm no blondie. :D

Speaking of blondes, heres Pauliina. I figured with Tolkki involved she'd be a blonde&I bet she's sporting some hefty knockers, to boot. :D

So you also see inconsequence of his actions. Well, I do not want to sound proofless, but I`m pretty sure TT is experiencing some kind of mental instability. Or maybe playing some secret game, but I`m not a fan of conspiracies.
So, Tolkki wanted to use another person to wtite his book - can`t he do that for himself? Anyway, does anyone know where her writings are?

TT ...you'll reveal YOUR point of view for what happened years ago. And you know that by the time you publish the book, there won't be fight anymore and the guys will have no time to reply (or even will to do it), so your book will be "the truth" after all.
Nice marketing shot.
Fits with you.

I'm glad YOU said that. :)
Tolkki IS a genius after all. And, no matter what he does, or will do he has enough fans to cover his ass&defend him.

There's just something I don't get.
Why those who believe, or at least try to understand Tolkki and his decisions are ass-kissers, while those who support the other members are not?
