Big thanks to Emppu for forwarding the answers to the following questions. Nice rare gift from him to join in :)

 

 

 

 

1: You always read awesome books. Can you recommend something?

 

* The best of Kama Sutra, The Quran and The Bible.

 

 

 

2: What is your favorite song to play live and which one is the most difficult?

 

* Jambalaya by Hank Williams. We always do it in soundchecks. Vocals by Troy. It`s also the most difficult one.

 

 

 

3: Favorite guitar solo of all time? (Doesn’t have to be a NW song)

 

* The one in Jambalaya.

 

 

 

4: How many different guitars do you have?

 

* I don`t know. I really don`t. 

 

 

 

 

5: How do you feel the guitar sections have evolved in Nightwish’s music?

 

* They haven`t changed much. More style, less speed maybe?

 

 

 

 

6: Any idea how many picks you get by in one year?

 

* Antti (my guitar tech) knows. Thousands of them. 

 

 

 

 

7: Do you still practice Judo?

 

* Only when drunk. 

 

 

 

 

8: What do you like doing in your spare time?

 

* Doing judo.

 

 

 

 

9: Compare this Nightwish and Nightwish before 10-15 years ago and tell us what do you miss, and what do you enjoy more now.

 

* I miss the special atmosphere of small clubs. What I enjoy more now is the fact that I can just play, no more driving, loading in or changing the guitar strings, haha. Also, there`s always beer backstage. That was not so back in the days.. 

 

 

 

 

10: If you could no longer live in Finland, where in the world would you choose?

 

* Anywhere except Sweden.

 

 

 

 

11: How many ways can you open a beer?

 

* One. That`s enough.

 

 

 

 

12: Any advice for beginner guitar players?

 

* Buy a trumpet.

 

 

 

 

13: Can you cook? If so, what’s your favorite dish to make?

 

* Yes, I like to cook. My favorite is lasagna, with the pasta made by myself. Tastes like shit but it`s fun to make. 

 

 

 

14: What was your absolute worst meal / drink on this tour?

 

* Something called "salad". 

 

 

 

15: Why did you stop using your amplifier on stage and started using the kemper instead?

 

* No, I didn`t, actually.

 

 

 

16: Do you write your guitar solos or is it Tuomas?

 

* They have always been mine to write.

 

 

 

17: If you could turn into any mythical creature of your choice, what would you like to be? 

 

* Garfield.

You know what's kind of sad?  Emppu, the supposed laziest person in the band, got his answers in, despite being the last one questioned, earlier than Kai did who STILL hasn't gotten back to us.

 

I mean I'm sure he has a perfectly good reason, like teaching Sofia Vergara proper stick grip.

Serioisly though, his answers were just as excpected, but funny and appreciated nonetheless.

 ´dance me to your beauty with a burning violin, 

  lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove,

  raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn,

  we're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above, dance me till the end of love´

Kai's on with it don't worry. He's just got some other bits and pieces on.

I just realized we're never gonna get an answer on why the title track was dropped from the set after being named the second single.

I couldn't stop laughing from start to end  :laugh: I love you Emppu, you're the man. Thank you for all your great energy.

Because it's bad, bad, awful, very bad, horribly bad. I think it's obvious, they aren't deaf.

I'm not a big fan of EFMB, but I don't think they consider it so bad. It's in the setlist of the concert in Tampere we'll have in our hands pretty soon and that means something. I think it was dropped because it's just redundant. If you have TGSOE, the title track becomes superfluous; same topic, worse song.

Baki, i bet you'd love it if they replaced every instrument with a bouzouki. :-P

Why not. Symphonic metal is so 2004, bouzouki metal is the new black.
