01.02.2004   STRATOVARIUS: Statement von Timo Tolkki zur Absage von Anders Johannsson

Hier das offizielle Statement von STRATOVARIUS Mastermind zur Absage von Anders Johannsson, der bei HAMMERFALL bleiben wird:
"He gave me a call and said that he doesnīt want to join the band permanently and that he is happy to be in Hammerfall playing True Metal. Since I am looking for a permanent member, we agreed in good spirits to go separate ways. I am very disappointed that he didnīt want to join STRATOVARIUS permanently, but at the same time I wish him and the Hammerfall guys well and best of luck with their career. I suspect that the decision of Anders has something to do with my
reputation. I can understand him very well, I wouldnīt join a band in which I would be playing in. I have already contacted a Finnish drummer and I hope I can announce his name very soon."
