    Did you check it out yet? My head was ready to explode around page six.

    I'm reading it right now; I'm on page 51 already. Granted, it could have been better-written, but I think it's good that he's doing this because maybe other people suffering with similar problems will get something out of it.

    This guy had a meltdown so bad it made Britney Spears's episode look like rainy day blues. He could easily have ended up dead. From what I read, this dude has a world of hurt to work through.

    ^I just found out that he totally faked the stabbing back in '04. I didn't think that was very cool at all. I do remember some people on the Stratoforum being skeptical of it back then due to some things that didn't look quite right, but most people had basic human compassion and believed the guy. I wonder if Tolkki was ever told the tale of the boy who cried wolf?

    Some better news, Strato has recruited their new drummer; a 25-year-old from Finland. Some more young blood to keep the sound fresh!

    Faking the stabbing was just a part of the illness. I read the accounts. He really went off the deep end and is lucky to be alive.

    The kid who replaced him is amazing. He was just 25 at the time and a real talent.

    Yeah, I know all that too. Still, I hope he doesn't expect too much pity if that ever happened to him for real, because no one would believe him! :lol:

    Indeed; Matias is awesome! Got to see him with Strato in '09 and he did a great job playing the old songs.
