WHY DID YOU START PLAYING?
• When I was 10 one of my good friends at the time borrowed Stratovarius’s Infinite album to me, which (among many other great songs) featured a song called Phoenix. After hearing that song, I remember thinking “Wow, that’s so cool! I want to play guitar too!” for the first time. I never became the next Tolkki, but after some twists and turns I ended up picking up the bass, which proved to be my forte anyway so all’s well that ends well.
