@MORKO, Chin up! I guess you have noticed by now that whenever some people cannot dispute the message, they try to deride the messenger--usually by ridicule, or going totally off-topic.
So, if you have something else to say, don't worry about the forum tactics some people will use to try to discredit your message. ;)

You are obviously right about forum user tactics to discredit other users, but Tolkki is probably just very busy now with his new band, and forum. Besides he is not a member of Stratovarius any longer, why should he waste his time here? And Jens would not ban him unless he and Tolkki had words privately. Timo will be back later.

And he needs to just forget about Frontiers and start fresh with the new label.

:? Does Mr Tolkki want his old band back??? Or what is this about love and understanding now? No more hate for TK ,LP and JJ. Are they not evil anymore??? Did he come to some insight???? I have read trough the most of this forum and I have not found a single nasty word from any of "the others" and maybe has Mr Tolkki come to the same conclusion! Unfortunately a bit late in the day 8)

Not a single nasty word? Perhaps because they were deleted. Tolkki does speak before he should and then he comes around eventually but I would never say the others haven’t said their shit too. Now Jens even basically said tolkki was getting fucked in the ass by Italian stallions with his funny cake metaphor example. Now I’m not positive about this but if koti did send letters to tolkki complaining then he comes on here and denies anything that is also negative on his part. In both sides statements they try to speak for each other and use negative words to describe the situations. In this tolkki just says that he wants the fans to support both bands and everyone’s life choices. Anything tolkki or the other guys has been mild compared to the venom non band members has spit out.

Why the songs of Kotipelto / Jens were not used in the Stratovarius Albums?
were not used just because you did not like them?
or had some other reason too?
Thank you Timo! :)
Because they did not fit to my concept of Stratovarius. Neither musically or lyrically. Those songs they offered that did not make it to the albums or bonustracks you can here in their respective solo albums. The biggest problem was that they were trying to compose "Stratovarius" songs, while I was
just composing songs.
They composed many songs and show to you, to join in Stratovarius Albums?
and you really like the music that came to the albums? songs like.. Uncertainty, Glory of the world, Why are we here?...
Sorry my English :P
God bless you Timo =)
There is nothing on the Strato albums that I dont like, at least when it was made. Now is different of course, when time passes by. Uncertainty I dont like so much. In the past I let TK to do lot of lyrics and for example that song out of..how would you call it...well I felt it was fair. And because it was hard to say no. It is not easy and sometimes it resulted in a compromise over the quality of the material. When my writing took more spiritual approach, it was impossible to accept those songs/lyrics anymore with all respect. Why are we here wasnt in any album I think, but thats a good song. I like Glory of the world, but its a bit too much "now I write a Stratovarius song" feel on it. Jens is one of the best keyboard players in the world. I wish he would do an album with just piano. He can play very very beautifully.





--------------------------------
I think Jens has had an album like that for quite a few years called Ten Seasons!
Tolkki did not even keep up with his own bandmates solo projects?
WHY ARE WE HERE was in an album called Intermission! Tolkki does not even know that?!!!!!Or maybe he does not count compilations as regular albums.

As to those Blabbermouth articles, its nice Tolkki has decided to pass the peace pipe, but I sense a tinge of regret or even longing. Maybe its just that the stage of acceptance has finally been reached, and all 5 guys can carry on to maybe bigger&better things.

I don't see anything annoying at those Tolkki's latest updates. It's nice to see that he's concentrating on it which he does the best: The music.

Well, it seems now on RR Forum TT does not want to discuss this project much any longer!

Hi, Timo!
I read on Wikipedia that you might compose the last album regarding Stratovarius. Sort of like a Requiem. Also I read that you were going to invite Lassila. Is this true? This unofficial album is said to have 3/4 of the same composture of Fright Night, Twilight Time, Dreamspace, and Fourth Dimension. In case if this is true, can you make it into a two-part album? Sort of like Avantasia's The Metal Opera. Now, if it's not true, you can always believe in what is best for you! There's no problem! Many fans like me are happy that you found another step to your dreams. Cheers!!!

(TT REPLY)Please make some research on the subject yourself by reading the forum. There is plenty of information about the subject and I cannot answer to everyone separately.
Anyway thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate them. One thing about Wikipedia. It is not a credible source of information since anybody can write there.

in this case this is what is on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratovarius "From the butchering media by only only posting a snippet catagory" "Timo Tolkki announced that next year (2009) he will record a last Stratovarius album that will close this chapter with dignity. Founding member of the band drummer Tuomo Lassila and former keyboard player Antti Ikonen join Stratovarius for one last album in 2009. Vocals and guitars will be done by Timo Tolkki. This line up is the 3/4 of the studio line up of Stratovarius albums 'Fright Night", "Twilight Time", "Dreamspace' and "Fourth Dimension"."

No Reply from TT yet..........:)

LOL! Tolkki said wikipedia is not source of credible information when wikipedia's words are EXACTLY what TT HIMSELF stated on his own RR Forum BEFORE wikipedia posted the info! :lol:

It should also be mentioned that tolkki has only made about 2 comments in the last week. There are a lot of questions with 0 replies. Even if morko is right, morko sure missed with the Bjorn bass player credible source thing so morkos sources are not always accurate

Mörkö's sources are very much in the loop, but things also change, and in ways that Mörkö is not going to talk about here.

Yes, Justin is indeed the one being asked to play bass with RR. What happened with Björn is also an interesting story, but that is also not anything Mörkö will talk about here. :)
