Love Jari, but in hindsight, I don't think they could've picked a better bassist to fill his shoes. Lauri proved he gels perfectly with the band, especially with his songwriting on Elysium. And he's amazing live.

Here's to another 10 years, Lauri!

sorry, i dont want be a gross, but im trying to know about more about this band.

I'm a curious persons more that one band that live in the other side of the planet.

first I will share the link, more now in sunday that im bored, but its very possible i will continue with my work

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lauri_Porra

in one part, is a but strange, maybe he need talk with wikipedia owners to change this, I will hadd in Black the part

Lauri Porra (born December 13, 1977) is a Finnish bassist and composer, best known for his work in Stratovarius[1] and Sinergy. Lauri Porra is a fourth generation musician, and the great-grandson of famous Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.[2] He started to study music at age 6 when he started to play cello in a local music school. In 1993 he switched to bass guitar and continued his studies in the Helsinki Pop Jazz Conservatory (1994–2004). Additionally he has taken lessons on piano, double bass, trumpet and male vocals. During 1997-1999 he sang with the renowned YL male choir performing for instance with the London Symphony Orchestra. He has released two solo albums "Lauri Porra" (2005) and "All Children Have Superpowers" (2008). He has also composed music to movies and TV-series in Finland.

In Portuguese, "Porra" is a pejorative slang for sperm. The fact made Timo Tolkki introduce him as "Mr. Porra" in Stratovarius concerts in Brazil.

I know that the world is crazy and internet is more crazy. But i dont know

Jari felt like a machine to me. Like in terms of technique he was 100% up there, but I never really noticed anything creative like with Lauri's bass work.

Also bring back shirtless Lauri!

Rather bring back extended bass-guitar-keyboard-duels or solo parts, where they can show all that creativity! One of the main disadvantages of these double-headlining-tours was the lack of time for such highlights :(
